With Google being the only company actually improving the quality of living in the USA, how long until the /g/ memes stop?
>Google rolls out fiber
>Internet speeds across the company increase between 2-10x.
>Google rolls out their new cellphone service
>Who the fuck knows. Maybe overall people won't be paying shit tons for 1 line.
Anecdotal, but Cox (big provider in AZ) offered me Gigabit at more or less the same price as my original package when the city started considering Fiber. They specifically upgrade the slower areas that would be the first to jump ship for Fiber.
T-Mobile is still better IMO than the pricing they have on the new Google data plan. I still want Google Fiber though, but TimeWarner is going to probably give in and compete with them as well anyways. Google is doing good for us.
/g/ will always hate Google though because they hate convenience and ease of use
TWC is increasing EVERYONE'S internet bandwidth in most areas
>/g/ will always hate Google though because they hate convenience and ease of use
In the future there will be only two types of people. The ones who like convenience and the ones who like privacy.
>GOOGLES DOING IT FOR THEIR OWN GOOD
>But we're benefiting too
>But we're getting better internet
>DONT USE IT BECAUSE GOOGLE
>Autists would rather people stick in the stone ages because of a company
Maybe people will finally stop having autism attacks because people uploaded a ,png.
I like what Google does for me but fear what it could do to me.
Google knows too much about you. Did you know even if you clear your cookies and log into another account they still track what you do online and often associate separate Gmail accounts with your primary account.
If this information was for sale it could destroy a person's life or land them in jail for something stupid like breaking minor fishing and wild life laws. As much as I hate Apple, even they seem more concerned with privacy.
Some people on /G/ do hate anything the normies obsess over, but some of us have very sound and logical reasons for our dislikes and decisions.
True, but I think if anything terrible was to really happen it would come to a point the public would not take it anymore seeing as how there are so many that do care for their privacy, just not as much as some here.
>Good thing we got net neutrality passed just in time before the free market fixed an imaginary problem
lel, this has to be b8.
Net neutrality was not addressing the speed of access to the internet. It was addressing the large ISPs extorting its clients and businesses on the internet by increasing latency, packet loss, or lowering quality of service for anyone who didn't pay up.
Net neutrality was passed to make sure that an ISP could not increase access to its own music service or TV service by slowing down everyone else.
>The ISPs would NEVER collude to slow down other business's services so that they could increase revenue by getting clients to access their own!
The whole problem doesn't stem from collusion, but from the monopoly some providers have been afforded by government.
My country has no net neutrality law at all, but it has a lot of competition between providers even in small towns and selective throttling would be suicide for any of them.
Fiber is great as a concept but it just means Google controls more aspects of our internet usage which I'm not a complete fan of. I mean they're mostly using it for advertisement purposes but that means they need to up their security.
It would be nice if other companies at least tried to compete with fiber instead of trying to block it out.
