They invest too little in their infrastructure as it is. Especially AT&T and Verizon. Let them threaten. Their “innovations” suck anyway. Let Google and anyone else who cares to pick-up the slack do so.

If federal law required local authorities to allow new players in to challenge the complacent oligarchy, or force the oligarchs to provide access to everyone in their “region,” that would improve internet access for a helluvalotta people. Either way, stop granting a local monopoly by law to a company that doesn’t even want me as a customer and lets me languish because they don’t feel like installing a cable to my house.

Yeah, this is personal to me. And I’ll bet my right eye I’m not the only one.

I pay for an “always-on” “high-speed” connection which is neither. How would I notice a drop in almost non-existent quality?

That’s nice. I’m sure Google Fiber won’t mind too much.

Yeah, for the 1% of the country that can get it.

They’ve already announced plans to expand to an additional 34 cities, including some major metropolitan areas.
The only 4 that aren’t on the list so far are New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles.

They already spend the absolute bare minimum on network upgrades as it is, to the point that L3 had to point out that they’re intentionally choking their consumers out ALREADY. And innovation, don’t make me laugh, modern American ISPs haven’t innovated in decades.

Only a complete fool would take this as anything other than a threat.

So not much chance for me then.
