I have no internet and I must scream

Postby InsaneIntentions1 » December 3rd, 2015, 10:10 pm

So I've been without any form of permanent internet since about the end of 2012. The only way I'm even able to talk anymore is using this phone I got earlier in the year :( I've looked several times at the internet providers that come to my area (the middle of nowhere), but all the options that would fit what I like to do are way out of my budget.http://www.broadbandmap.gov/internet-se ... 000000002/ do you guys have any idea what I should do? I need the internet to constantly improve my work, it's my main source of entertainment, and one of the only ways to keep in contacts with my friends.

That link doesn't seem to show prices but if you're doing nothing more demanding than Youtube even at 1080p you should be okay even with that Spacenet Inc. company if they're the cheapest. (Just going by the listed speeds for that guess.) The low end of their estimate is just under the download speeds I tend to get for 720p and 1080p videos.

I can't really say more than that without knowing what their prices actually are as well as your budget for it though.

Problem is the data allowance which is pretty low

Oh right. I didn't think of that. Data allowances are one of the most retarded concepts ever and whoever came up with them deserves to drop something heavy on their foot.

I hope Google storms across the world and rabidly buttfucks all the shitty ISPs out there.
The internet is the future and ISPs are holding progression back.

The government should give google a bunch of money to extend fiber across the US, because that would be a worthwhile cost.

Yeah. Except they're apparently too busy trying to pass internet destroying laws :tangry:

you'd think a commie would want the government to do something like that

its a nice infrastructure thing after all

maybe im just antigoogle enough that i dont want taxpayer money to them

but maybe im somehow a liberal in that id rather it be incentivised by a market than a politician

or am i anarquista

what the hell have i become help

Wait if you have no internet then what is your excuse for being unproductive? Like not what do you do without internet, but like what is your excuse when people ask you "What did you do all day? and why didn't you accomplish anything?"
