wonderful
To find a good printer in Canada. I would suggest using the following companies: Toronto Printing Companies | Calgary Printing Companies | Winnipeg Printing Companies | Montreal Printing Companies | Regina Printing Companies | Saskatoon Printing Companies | Quebec Printing Companies | Ottawa Printing Companies | Edmonton Printing Companies | Vancouver Printing Companies | These companies provide the best and most affordable price in whole Canada. Other printing companies I suggest would be Print Quote Services | Printing Company | Best Local Printer | Some other local cities have great printers as well such as the following: Charlotte Printing | Dallas Printing | Nashville Printing

If you are looking to print custom stickers. The following is my best choice: Label and sticker printing | Print Custom Sticker | Print Stickers | No only they offer the best sticker printing quality but also unbeatable price.

Nowadays, it is hard to find quality print trader. This is my recommendation for best print trader in the united states Best Print Trader | Lowest Price Printing Wholesale | Print Outsourcing | Print Broker Trade

Lastly, all print should comes with a state of the art Print Management Software. I would highly recommend this print software tool.

Thank you for this fascinating study. Having lived in Geneva for several years, I can only second this report - it's very accurate. Something to keep in mind though, no matter how awesome your city's internet access is or the good reputation of your ISP providers, the problem is often the cost of living. Living in Geneva is crazy, even for Swiss residents. Prices are so high that living close to the urban center is at best a chimera.

So while some very high-tech urban centers can boast unbelievable connectivity, the flip side of the coin is that it rarely benefits the common people.

Re: internet cities
I believe this is a critical element for cities to market themselves to the world and something that will only grow with importance in the coming years. Great post.

Re: Internet connectivity
@Hazel, yes, if the legislators bring in experts with the right amount of knowledge in the right areas. But if they don't know enough about what they don't know, it is likely they may trust "experts" with just surface knowledge -- or an axe to grind. Lobbyists aren't the best for making impartial technology judgments.

Re: Internet connectivity
You raise a valid point, Mary. But I was thinking, perhaps we could give them more credit, assuming that they choose to bring in experts from the field when they embark on these kinds of projects. It would be futile if their efforts were half-baked.

Re: Internet connectivity
I agree, Peter. Looking at the list, it seems that many other cities have taken the lead. It should be made a federal priority, given the impact it has on businesses and education, but I can't help thinking that this could be because other sectors were prioritized.

Re: Internet connectivity
The problem with leaving the future of broadband in government hands is that, IMO, the government typically doesn't understand enough about Internet issues -- I mean the underlying technology issues as well as the application effects -- to make wise choices about regulation. Sad but true.

Re: Internet connectivity
Yes, Mary. It does seem we have lost the lead in connectivity and speed. We've had other discussions around attention to infrastructure, but your point about relevance to business is especially important. Broadband is a utility but service levels are so varied. I looked at a couple of articles about it today and leaders in technology really stress that it needs to be a federal priority to move us forward.

Blaming the government
For those blaming the government for stalling US Internet progress, this report in the WSJ may shed some light on why we have less competition than other nations.

The link between US security and the telecom infrastructure seems to be holding up some activity that could result in a broader cast of carriers and ultimately faster services.
