A Better Internet for All of Us

When browsing for a new Internet Service Provider, it’s always smart to shop around – if your area has enough providers for you to do so. I find that websites like http://cheapdslinternetserviceproviders.com/ are particularly useful and they often have information for multiple states, even. This can give a resident or even a potential future resident the ability to browse and compare prices! At the same time these same sites also show us that in the United States there appears to be a disconcerting lack of Internet Service Providers being made available to us. I remember when dial-up was far more accessible than cable when I was younger but if memory serves correctly, it was because there were several dozen or more providers that residents could pick and choose from. Sure, the web certainly wasn’t nearly as content driven then as it is now and thus had fewer users browsing it, but there were still a high concentration of options for us to pick from. What happened?

It’s a frustrating question especially when you consider that the current companies were given a large sum of money, tax payer money at that, in order to upgrade their cable networks and infrastructure so they could handle higher speeds and offer lower prices to their customers. However, several of these companies did absolutely nothing with the money which seems to have mysterious disappeared. What was done with it? Why are we still being forced to pay higher prices for services which, in other countries, are faster, of higher quality and cheaper? There is something wrong with the United States Internet service and something has to be done about it. We should not allow these companies to take advantage of the American public as they currently are. Speak with your Congressman, your Senator and even your local government to make change happen!
