I’ve said it before: it pains me that I have to root for another gigantic corporation to come along and offer any kind of real competition to these assholes, but I could round up a gang of volunteers to tear up sidewalks and string fiber-optic cable if it means that Google Fiber gets into Oregon that much faster.

How did John Oliver put it? “Yes, Bank of America took my home. Yes, Taco Bell gave me diarrhea. And sure, GM tried to kill me. But Time Warner and Comcast are the worst…”

Internet speeds in America are embarrassingly slow and expensive. A part of me hopes that tomorrow Apple will announce a new incentive: “fuck it, we’ll just build a goddam decent network.”

I get internet cable from my town’s publicly owned utility. We get 30 Meg. 4 meg is a joke.

The really stupid thing is that the networks that exist today are already perfectly capable of handling faster speeds with zero negative impact whatsoever

In the UK, the speeds we see here are a joke. I get about 1.5 megs at home. In most places in Scotland, you can get up to 150 megs.

Don’t you wish and hope?
