That's what happens when you let 70 year old politicians who still buy stamps determine standards for technology.

I'm not sure how many of those politicians were 70 years old... pretty sure they are bought and paid for, though.

I'm completely out of the loop regarding the technology of how increased bandwidth is achieved...but I do think it's crazy the way US internet speed lags behind other developed countries.

Why invest in increased infrastructure...when you can save money by simply investing in politicians to fight off mandates demanding increased speeds?
