I really want FIOS. Unfortunately, I don’t think I am going to get it – because apparently Verizon has completed it franchisee requirements in the state of New Jersey.

Its pretty mind blowing that in the most industrialized nation on earth, I still need to depend on one vendor (or two) to get the kind of connectivity that most industrialized nations take for granted.

Oh well, DSL it is for me. Frankly, it does most of the work. Its only when I am watching Netflix does it become apparent to me that my internet isn’t strictly “broadband.

Damn you, Verizon.
