snails & telecom

2006-02-10 22:14:12.580099+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

So over the past decade the U.S. has given over $200 billion in tax breaks to the telecommunications industry with the promise that we were going to have fiber to every home. As a result, we're slightly ahead of Slovenia in terms of broadband uptake, while our telecom carriers appear to be lying about how much they really spend on us.

It is with that in mind that I think you should go check out the results of an experiment which shows that Snails are faster than ADSL.
