FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Google Fibre is such a poor decision.
You sure you wanna let 1 company own your entire internet access?

What the hell do you think having an ISP is like right now?

It's like having a choice between several different companies all competing and thus keeping prices fair and the service good.

If we're all working in google salt mines paying off a debt that gets larger every day in 20 years, i want you to know i fucking called it.

Where I live, there is only one ISP. That's how it is in the US. There are very few markets with multiple options. Right now, it's the threat of another competitor opening up shop that keeps prices down. Google currently has the most aggressive stance on speed and usage so it's the best *possible* option. Is it possible that google just takes over and we're all screwed and we do end up working in salt mines?

...

No, for some reason I don't see that happening in the present moment, but that company has so many engineers I wouldn't be surprised if one was developing Google Salt. "Add a little to your search!"

That's the reason why I have Comcast. There's Verizon as well, but I'm pretty sure I don't get FiOS in my area.
