My special holiday wish actually isn’t all that impractical: I just want gigabit Internet.
To hear CenturyLink tell it, gigabit is coming to residences in my town any day now (lies!). A broadband salesperson knocked on my door the other day and told me that a competing ISP already offered gigabit in a nearby neighborhood (lies!). He also told me that no one really needs more than 100Mb/s anyway (idiocy!).
There are lots and lots of people in my time zone that already have those sweet, zippy Internet speeds, which makes me want it even more. Those people are sitting there in their comfortable homes, streaming Netflix on six different devices just because they can, all while uploading a year's worth of high-res family movies in mere minutes.
I want to be like them. - By Seth Colaner
