Vegas 28th largest US City?

This just seems to underline how rural the US really is. Vegas has a population well under half a million. Compare this with Europe and it is quite obvious that Urban living is not really a massive feature of US living.

Re: Vegas 28th largest US City?

Practically every city in Europe is at least 10 times older the Las Vegas.

Las Vegas population growth is booming. A shame they won't have the fresh water to support it.

Re: Vegas 28th largest US City?

It would seem that the largest Urban concentrations in Europe are actually to be found in Russia. That would seemly make those Russian properties enourmously valuable. Not only does it mean that individual domain names have a higher natural market, but also large conurbations tend to attract large amount of capital investment. It would seem that Russia is in line for a massive amount of inward investement.

Come on. Development with almost total disregard for the environment is deeply rooted in the culture!

Re: Vegas 28th largest US City?

I don't know about that link.

from the link: Athens: 772,000
from wikipedia: "A bustling and cosmopolitan metropolis with an urban population of 3.3 million and total population of about 3.8 million"

am I missing something?

Some of the UK cities are actually given as being quite small. The problem is what you actually count. There are often big discrepancies between the official city and the greater conurbation. Manchester is a key example.

Re: Vegas 28th largest US City?

Vegas is well over a million. Just like Atlanta and LA show small populations, the metro areas are large.

Re: Vegas 28th largest US City?

talk about growth, I dont think they all stay, they probably get thirsty and go back home. :p

"Clark County is one of the fastest-growing areas in the country, with more than 5,000 people moving here each month.

.....it provides regional services for more than 1.9 million residents and 43 million tourists a year"

Clark Country (Las Vegas) has 1.5 million permanent population.
The 500,000 are those that just live in the city.

Vegas gets approx 1,000,000 visitors a WEEK in peak season, 40 million visitors annually!
Pretty impressive numbers, a good many of those are international convention groups.
They have spectacular facilites for huge exhibitions and shows.

SciFi-aka GoIdn-aka Bruins- That is an unnecessary comment based on a small number of dispicable incidents.

Re: Vegas 28th largest US City?

Sounds like Hell! Wild horses wouldn't drag me there.

The point I was trying to make, however, still seems pretty valid and rather crucial in the the roll-out of Fibre Optic Internet, is that the US is generally far less urbanised generally than Europe, or much of the Far East.

35% of the US population (about 108 million) lives in the top 20 largest metro areas, the smallest area of the top 20 being Baltimore at 2.65 million.

Fibre optics?! Never heard of such a thing out here in rural America. Yes, our in-ter-net still runs on vacuum tubes and cranks.

Get a clue.

So I have heard but seriously this is a subject of debate in the UK, and it looks as though those that live in the Cities are going to get Ultra Fast Broadband a lot quicker than those in sticks. It is going to be a hell of a lot more cost effective doing the former than the latter.

Re: Vegas 28th largest US City?

Basically every major dioceses in the US is accused by the government in perpetuating a non-stop child abuse for at least 40 years.
LA diocese just settled for $770+ million to pay the child victims. The US tally at the moment is $5.7B and counting. B is for Billion.
"small number of dispicable incidents" ???
You gotta be kidding.

WiMAX will change all of this within the next several years. Copper and fiber operators are going to give up doing fixed last-mile connections (which is their major cost), in favor of WiMax.

The Russians are already rolling out WiMAX across broad swaths of the country, Finns have deployed it across the archipelagos, etc... It's coming.

I wish they would have found WiMax before they started digging in my front yard.
they are digging/re-digging to run last-mile connections for dsl at least thats what they told me. they may just be playing with the machinery.

But isn't Wimax just another urban solution?
