The nightmare of playing Neverending Nightmares is neverending.

Battleborn Review

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?

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.

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.
