As a Canadian, let me respond as soon as I finish being angry at the editor...
Seriously, why post the results of an oligarchical industry funded story as if fact? Seriously, what the hell, editors?
Let me put how offensive and misleading this is in perspective by changing the quote a tad:
"Americans enjoy among the fastest, most widely available and least expensive broadband Internet in the developed world, says a report released Thursday. The report, based on the results of 52 million speed tests of broadband users across the G7 countries and Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) membership, was produced by NY-based consulting firm SomeGuy Associates Inc. on behalf of AT&T Communications Inc., the country's largest broadband service provider. It disputes the OECD's own report, published in July, that ranked Canada's high-speed Internet offerings significantly below those of other countries. The report comes days after the FCC revealed a sharp jump in the number of complaints it has received regarding Internet traffic-management practices, or 'throttling' in recent months."
By helping spread this FUD you are literally doing harm to us. Due diligence, do you speak it?
I've been visiting this site for a long time. I've not liked some of the things and mistakes I've seen posted here, but this is actually making me angry. Congratulations.
