Well, I don’t know if the people at Google Fiber should feel ashamed, but check it:
That’s like what, about a thousand times faster than your AT&T ADSL connection for less than what Google charges for Google Fiber?
You know why we don’t have this here? Because of politically-connected monopolies like Comcast.
JAPAN DON’T HAVE NO COMCAST, YOU DIG?
Of course, the Japanese pay waaaaaay too much for rice, on account of bad policies having to do with mom and pop farmers, but they’re doing lots better than us with the internet.
And did you know that there are people living out there west of San Francisco, all the way out there in the Outer Richmond and the Outset (the Outer Sunset) who can’t get cable internet or DSL at any price? Yes, in this day and age, in 2013, there are people in this so-called World Capital of Innovation who go online with a dial up modem because they have no choice.
Poor, poor West Bay devils. (At least they have Ocean Beach.)
In closing, the Comcast monopoly ought to get shut down and Sony should start selling us internet for cheap.
