Im a little disappointed in these comments! I dont see anyone complaining that a utility is even spending money on this sorta thing, much less a publicly owned utility....did I miss the part where we started enjoying abuses from the mono/duopolies to which we are all conscripted?? From the rich right down to the poorest or poor in our citizenry, we all pay for utilities, one way or another. It could even be argued that the brand of gravy fed the homeless is one slot cheaper because soup kitchens pay these bills too. Has the world gone mad?? Since when can a public resource use funds in this way? Where is the outrage? Where is the inquisition? I would even go so far as to say even were this service offered for free of charge to this utility that they are engaging in a cover-up! Fraud! Deceit! Pitchfork, anyone? Hello? Anyone?
Hats off to google - but not really. This is what they do. This is what I have come to expect from every other ISP until this nonsense with Netflix paying that ridiculous ransom. These big old companies have been laughing all the way to the bank having sold all these speed tiers and now that we are more fully utilizing the service - and at the expense of their other business divisions - its become a tool of extortion. Instead of optimizing their traffic flows (for the benefit of all) they are holding this simple engineering work as a hostage. Regional interconnects used to just do this with a service request.
I count a lot more just on these 2 screens
More tech predictions from MBAs. Why is

whoa! the public pays tuition in Virginia! Im so there...
Smient Spionum u mean?
yea, bankers never again stopped giving loans to snatch up cheap real estate anymore....cmon all due respect, youll need to do a lot more to convince me bankers (and their counterparts in industry and government) have any less control over the proverbial faucet. Scarcity of access to our currency can be engineered in so many more ways in a debt backed system - you listed most of them - than ever before. I dont think its simply about the currency anymore. ftr, i never liked the idea of bitcoin either
if only developers fixed glitches this fast.....or any other governments for that matter

According to the McClatchy Washington Bureau, Vladimir Luxuria was allegedly arrested after holding a rainbow colored banner that said 'Gay is OK' in Russian. Luxuria took a photo, holding the banner, outside of Olympics' Medal Park. She put the picture on Twitter."

I so hate when people confuse it with multiple personality disorder. And so do I!
Yea - wasnt it found that many/most pirates are among the most profitable consumers of the very material they share? I know for my part I already somehow paid for the bulk of anything i piratdid back in the day (harf) and still spend tons of money on IP.
yea where is the next gen hypersensitive sonar or freaking drones flying the perimeter of swimming areas! fy fan...
Its called climate change because of the unpredictable events. Perhaps you would like to consult a scientist? I wont ridicule you like those that claimed it was a myth when Las Vegas got snow in the summer time, but trust me - they got it good.
They probably figured it would be less 'obvious' if the so-called liberal media supported them instead of the 'obviously' biased Foxnooze.
