That's called your parents putting an internet security program on your computer.

When the internet first came out, we had the best and the fastest. Now we're like 39th or something. Many countries have way faster internet than us for way cheaper. It's effing lame. And some companies are trying really hard to keep monopolies on the internet over here. And trying to get municipal internet like in Lafayette Louisiana shut down because it's faster and cheaper there and they don't wanna lose money over that.

My biggest problem isn't the quality of websites, but the speed at which they are delivered. A lot of smaller countries can provide really high consistent speeds, while America is really freakin' huge and as such requires more fiber optics or whatever. My only source of this is like three years old and says that America is 28th in the world for such things.

Also, a lot of places out in the countryside are still on 56K internet, or so I imagine.

Well, we did invent all the connections and physical stuff with DARPA and whatnot, but I am pretty sure that Tim Berners-Lee from CERN did most of the work on the World Wide Web part of it, HTML and all of that, so it was really more of a joint effort sort of thing. I think.

Anyway, my statement from before about speed still stands. We have an average nationwide rate of around 6.7MBPs, compared to South Korea which has 15.7MBPs or something.
