    • Please bring broadband to Harmony Grove Escondido Ca

      We are 5 minutes from HomeDepot and a huge city. We are in a valley and there is no service and we will pay. Someone will have to "force" AT&T or Cox to run the **** lines. I realize that its $10/foot but over the first year all of our cable and internet bills would easily cover that.

      • Engage YouTube, Hulu, NetFlix, etc in your tests.

        If you could embed some javascript to test speeds on sites like YouTube, Hulu and NetFlix, you could probably get a better idea of the anti-competitive practices perpetrated by ISPs. When I visit any speed test site, I get well over 10Mbps speeds -- frequently in the range of 15Mbps. However, it's taken me 10 minutes to watch a 51 second video on YouTube that's not even 720i quality. Hulu and NetFlix are all but unusable at times when speedtest.net, performance.toast.net, and your site all report a solid connection. What's more, the video I was watching from YouTube was linked…

        • Chapter 6 Infrastructure Recommendation 6.2.

          This is the best idea I have heard of. This would incourage the private sector to build out more broadband, without cutting jobs. Dig once would cut out jobs. This pole attachment and make ready process is very costly. In towns where there is only one service provider for broadband this pole attatchment problem is huge. I think that regulations like this that promote competition without cutting jobs is the best way to help facilitate growth in the broadband market. I also agree with streamlining the permit process for federal controlled property. I do not agree with dig once because…
