Social networking sites and a physical broadband connection are nowhere near the same thing.

Old and I'll believe it when I see it. Remember that Google is the company that had a hard time scraping together some tech support for the Nexus. And they intend to build out at least the last mile in a fiber network? That is going to take a whole lot more manpower than some phone jockies with a script.

I was thinking (and have a plan) for a youtube video to submit as well, but I might get to lazy.

You ****s can't steal my idea, but I wanted to make a badass montage of my internet disconnecting, downloads speeds at 0, pages not loading, the awful login page my ISP uses, etc. They are the only ISP for my building and the speeds are 2mbit but we pay the same as comcast/verizon. Opening webpages is dialup slow during peak hours and forget about any online gaming.

Be sad for me.

I would love it here, but I can't even get a respectable company to come here, much less a beta. Stuck with a ****ing monopoly and it isn't a big name company.

Comcast is not as bad as many ISPs in the US. They may have a cap, but it is the most lenient of any major American ISP.

And, they are the only major American cableco to widely deploy D3 services.

I can smell the monopoly lawsuits coming! I'm surprised they've made it this far without being separated but I can definitely see this becoming the straw that broke the camel's back.

^ great speeds, assuming everything you might want to access on the net has peering with comcast or is within 100 miles of you

they just want to give people faster access to everything google so they can sell more ads and make the google stock price skyrocket.
