why do you "deserve better"? Quite the sense of entitlement no?
If it really is that valuable, then paying more per month shouldn't be a major issue right?
I see it another way, for the low sum of $50 a month you have access to all kinds of services that in the past would have cost hundreds of dollars per month and would have taken many hours more of your time to access.
no, it's an optional service that is by no means a right or a utility.
Let's see the addicted to internet operate their play toys without electricity or function without water.
This is crazy.

Re: Messed Up Priorities
Everything you did could have easily been done without broadband. Broadband just made it easier. It is a convenience and nothing more. It is not necessary. You can live without it. You can't live without running water, heat, properly stored food, etc.

MOST IMPORTANT UTILITY? Broadband? Really? Accessing a government website is more important than keeping the refrigerator running or having clean water come out of the faucet?
52% of people are beyond stupid
Ask those on the East Coast today where they would put clean running water and electricity on their priority list.
What this is, in addition to proving people are dumb, is clear evidence of our superior infrastructure. Electricity and water services are SO reliable that people simply take it as a given. They have zero clue what it is like in some other countries where power isn't reliable.
Messed Up Priorities
This is messed up. This is why our economy is crap. People don't know the difference between needs and wants. Broadband is a want. Electricity is a need. Electricity is an important utility. Broadband is not. People pay for their internet connections and then don't have money to pay their electric bills and have to rely on social welfare programs to pay for their electric bills.
