    Come on Google-Alphabet. Start a mass tower spread of the newest long reaching Broadband/WiFi and the pooh with those sharks.

    They will always have a good pitch to sell enough of their crappy services to keep the bank rolls rolling.

    The rest of us need some decent access and seems the fastest and dependable is always on WiFi :D

    And maybe the beginning of real satellite Internet. With LEO for lower latencies. It's been a long time coming.
