    Using home wi-fi is more convenient than using the fixed line...
    :confused:

    AT&T starts capping broadband
    May 3, 2011 -- The days of all-you-can-surf broadband are vanishing. AT&T this week began capping its Internet delivery service for broadband and DSL customers. The move comes 11 months after it placed similar caps on its mobile customers.

    Google is out to improve their bottom line. Period.

    This nation is in dire need of rural fiber infrastructure.

    Ahh yes google is pursuing the easy money in the high density areas.
    Telcos cover the lower profit/density areas too.

    Money telcos make in urban areas help to provide reasonable cost service in rural areas.
