We all want Google fiber. I will take Verizon FIOS too, but they won't service in my neighborhoods even though the cities have them! Ugh.

It's also kinda hilarious that the original video is blocked in Germany, despite the GEMA not having any national rights to the music. The reason it's blocked? The artist did not prove that the music is not Gema licensed (yes, that has to be proven here in Germany by the artist).

God damned, I hate the GEMA with a burning passion.

Honestly, Gangnam Style I actually like as a meme because it came out being not too serious about itself. In a way, a parody of everything popular, therefore easy to give the nod of approval to, in fact, be considered at least geeky cool. Cool

If all Google Fiber does is make cable companies start caring more about customer service, it will be a big win for the country.

This. Also, why should we have to beg Google? Why can't we just end the duopoly and let an open market end our being raped by Comcast/Verizon/Time Warner? The duopoly is corporate socialism and the sanity of it needs to be questioned.

Political freedom can only be preceded by economic freedom which is preceded by monetary freedom.

Google fiber sounds interesting. Hopefully it'll spur even more innovation and more importantly, competition. The Telecom monopoly we have going right now serves no one but the corporations themselves. We need a system more akin to the UK (for a start at least).

Sadly I don't see it happening. Republicans will back their big business buddies and decry it as socialism (even though the UK system epitomizes the free market system).
