Since he's clearly trying to sell T1's, that's hardly surprising.

I have a T1. It provides symmetric bandwidth and considerably lower latency than DSL or cable. My T1 provides 1.5Mb each way with about3ms delay. It's not hard to find a cable connection that can download that fast or faster, but I've never seen cable or ADSL with that upload speed.
Of course, if we lived in Japan we'd have 100Mb both ways for about $10/mo, so a more reasonable question is why we can't get that here.
