Robin Hoodie: weird that a law from 1996 focused on television broadcasting and telephone services and would do a poor job at taking the internet into consideration. who would have guessed?
Linux_Yes: INeedAName: I'm likely going to get stuck with satellite when I move...you'll love the 10GB monthly caps.
nocturnal001: Angela Lansbury's Merkin: Marcus Aurelius: But I can choose between FIOS and Comcast!At least they offer similar speeds. I have Time Warner (and they don't offer the higher speeds they advertise on TV here) or ADSL which gets me 3Mbps down and 768Kbps up (at best).Yup. TW is terrible.Google fiber will be delivered to me sooner or later though. Sweet sweet fiber.I can't believe the ISPs get away with such varying connection speeds. It should not be legal to advertise 8mb download when most of your customers never see anything close to that. This is like advertising a car that get's 100mpg, but with fine print that it only that efficient when it is in idle going down a hill with a tail wind.Of course we have an evil gubmint agency that somewhat monitors MPG claims.
