Default Google Fiber

Google Fiber is going to systematically destroy current ISP's unless they somehow compete, and I have no idea how they could. A fond adieu, Comcast, Time Warner, etc...

Anybody who currently has an ISP should read this. That means you. All of you.

Here's What Google Fiber Is Like - Business Insider

Pretty cool. It'll be interesting to see if/how long it takes for it to take off. That's just slightly more than what I pay for our Internet provider and the TV option is less than Basic Cable package.

I imagine they will face a shitload of bullshit litigation to get it installed in most cities.

America is so awesome.


The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them.

Google Fiber chooses nine metro areas for possible expansion | Ars Technica

Welp it'll probably be ten years before I get gigabit internet. Damnit.

Rumor is that there is affordable gigabit in chattanooga, tn already. Makes me wonder if there are other cities like that.

I had read earlier that Fort Wayne was supposed to be the foothold in Indiana, that was probably a year ago.

I know Ft Wayne has FIOS, Verizon's fiber-optic offering. I'm not sure if that makes them a foothold for Google Fiber because of a pre-existing network, or one of the last places they'd go since there is already a large competitor offering 100mbps+ at a semi-affordable rate.

Your mother's vagina is a foothold for chlamydia.

This is probably true. On the plus side, that can be cleared up with a round of antibiotics ... unlike your unoriginal faggotry and AIDS
