same also for Kanagawa/Yokosuka/Zushi area. Served by cable TV provider CATY (, likely the whole Miura-Hanto and Shonan up to Fujisawa and Chigasaki. Connects to (J-COM Shonan). Although the service is generally in Japanese, they provided an installation instruction in English, and have two English speaking technicians.
Standard is 1 public IP address via DHCP, more addresses can be ordered, Terayon cable modem used. 
Recently I made a FTP download from a site in Kyoto with 80kB/s, measuring with bandwidth sites mentioned in ealier postings reveal very strange results: one site displayed a down stream speed higher than T1. Anyway, it is fast enaugh for SWR3 radio from Germany :-).
