  1. Dude, I have been happy since I got DSL instead of dial-up. Things are already pretty damned fast. Remember back when we used the U.S. Mail? And read newspapers? Additional speed I do not need. Everything is already instantaneous enough.

    Yes, I have a Luddite streak.

  2. @Gretchen: You don’t know what you need until you get it.
    @Brian: Thanks. Wouldn’t it be nice if like carbon credits, we could buy other people’s bandwidth?

  3. Right on! While you erred when you said CK considers 200 mbps as broadband (they actually consider 200 kbps as broadband…curiously this is the same number used by their supporters, the telcos), you are right on the mark that CK or ConnectedNation has done nothing of value and that they present no model which carries value for the nation. They present their own interests, pure and simple. Thanks for being one of the very few who refuse to drink their kool aid.

  4. @All: William Ray’s bio: “I am the CEO of the Glasgow Electric Plant Board.”
    Glasgow Kentucky has had municipal owned cable broadband since, “forever” run by the electric plant board.
