I have no problems with foc.. Squirrel!
This story is shocking, just shocking.
Silly Republicans, space is for kids.
Amazing how one person in a company can affect the whole company. One AT&T employee decided on his own to make this threat. Most likely he is looking for a new job tonight. Also, the "Bait and Switch" was nothing of the kind. Anyone who signed up for the old $30 plan can still keep it. So, without a real "switch" it's not a bait and switch now is it?
Did you read the rest of the article though? Reads almost exactly like what you would read for ANY OS. Windows, OSx, Linux, anything.

Heat kinda makes me slow too...
And then next year it will be 5G. It never ends...
Can you hear me now?
NO, not at all. But, more builds to me means more effort into code generation. I know, not much but it might show more concern over innovation too.
Interesting, seems my iPhone gets better throughput that some of the states in the US. Go figure. I just wish they'd work on the download/upload ratio on broadband. I agree it should be different, but 10/1 or 20/1 or worse is NOT good. It should be closer to 2/1 or at worst 3/1. Heck, even old analog modems had 2/1 ratios. It just seems worthless to have 20 Mb/s download when I can only get stuff up at less than 1 Mb/s (my current broadband ability). Not to mention if I telecommute, the upload speed kills my productivity!
How many times has Chrome been built? How many times has Firefox? Seems that would be a better telling number than the version number. Version is just too arbitrary.

Ookla, the company behind Speedtest.net, Pingtest.net, and the bandwidth testing apps deployed at many ISPs, has gone public with Net performance stats from 1.5 billion users (and counting). Their Net Index page displays download speed, upload speed, and connection "quality" from the EU and the G8, to countries, worldwide cities, and US states. Beginning today, the company is also making detailed (anonymized) data available to academics. "Ookla will also start surveying users about how much they pay for broadband and how much bandwidth they were promised by their ISPs. The results of those questions will go into building a Value Index, which will show how much people around the world pay per megabit-per-second for Internet access. In addition, by collecting postal codes from Speedtest users, Ookla hopes to map broadband service to local economic conditions, Apgar said. The Speedtest data could give the US government far more information to work with in setting priorities for its National Broadband Plan..."
