While Google has gotten a lot of PR mileage out of the idea that Google Fiber helps local businesses where it’s deployed, the company doesn’t actually offer Google Fiber for businesses.

Home users using their lines for business were […]

Silicon Valley Simply Adores the Comcast Merger. Or Not. -

Like AT&T did when they tried to acquire T-Mobile, Comcast is using the fairly standard lobbying trick of using third party groups to parrot merger support — since it’s hard to get someone to like what most agree will be an anti-consumer merger without paying them. That includes the use of everything from minority groups to an ocean of niche associations, many of which are often willing to sell out their own constituents and support […]

In their blog post, Verizon takes the opportunity to pretend that people are somehow stopping the company from deploying more FiOS (even though they’ve put the breaks on deployment themselves). They also insist that a company […]
