Five times the Internet speed, for free. Because capitalism.

speedtest

Why did my Internet get so fast for the same price?  I’m really not sure.  Well, Google Fiber is coming to town.  And in a completely unrelated event [cough, cough], Time Warner Cable decided to dramatically increase access speeds with zero price increases.

You do NOT get this with Socialism or Communism.  And Crapitalism is only marginally better than those.  Regional monopolies sound better than country-wide monopolies, but for the end user they are still monopolies.  You need real free-market competition to optimize things for everyone.

That is all.

    1. Hi and thanks for commenting. “Good government” would do what a good Constitution (which we have) would say it could do – protect borders, citizens, etc.

      In this case government was good at giving regional monopolies far too much power, and customer service and goods and services took a hit.
