Google Soon To Be The #1 ISP In The Country?

Interesting post about Google moving forward with their ISP service. I am not so sure if I like the idea of using Google as an internet provider even though I don't like Comcast either.I had my hopes up high for Verizon FIOS but it seems like it's a no go now. I hope it's not Google that dominates as the #1 ISP on the market. Someone else should step up to the plate!

Google leads the world in search, driverless cars, phone operating systems, mail services, and office in the cloud. Now it is going to be the most desired ISP. And what are Microsoft and Apple doing with their money? Sitting on it, mostly.

@SteveGerencser Of course they want to start taking away customers from other providers as quickly as possible. That way if their service is better people will spread the word for them and make all their friends switch too :)

 

If they just offered it in the area where people don't have other options then their plan wouldn't work.
