"Yes, Bank of America took my home. Yes, Taco Bell gave me diarrhea. And sure, GM tried to kill me. But Time Warner [Cable] and Comcast are the worst. They are the worst." - John Oliver
Early this summer John Oliver spoke on evils of the cable company. This year however has brought wonderful changes in the internet. Google got bored and decided to offer internet that is 100 times faster than what Comcast is currently pumping into my house. To make things even more amazing they are giving free internet equivalent at speeds Comcast will charge you $20/month. Like every other citizen of Provo, I signed up for the free internet. Although I am still waiting in line for the installation of my magical free internet, Google has changed the world. According to the article I read, a nationwide increase of over 10% has occurred this year in internet speeds. More ISP's have emerged to provide competing service, and multi-billion dollar Comcast actually felt threatened enough to start researching faster internet. Thank you Google, now please install my fiber before Christmas.
