Hey internet.

Here is the article I read describing the FCC’s solution to slow internet connections. It goes into a bit more detail than my 4 panels.

As mentioned in the comic, the FCC proposes to lower the minimum definition of broadband from the already embarrassingly low and archaic 25 Mbps down to 10. Way to think of the future, guys.

This is like “solving” rush hour traffic congestion by renaming dirt roads to “expressways” and calling it a day. I’m sure it looks good on paper somewhere, and I’m even more sure that my ISP is in love with this proposal.

Anyway, I could go on, but I won’t. I’m sounding bitter. I have some personal, non-internet stuff going on right now that's bringing me down. Maybe I’ll get into it later. Maybe not. Things could be better.

I hope all is well with you. Catch you in a few days.
