USA usa mala red

Psyart (Norman Holland) nos pasa este recorte sobre el público cautivo:

 Susan Crawford (telecommunications advisor to President Obama in 2012), discussing the arguments in her book Captive Audience.  She says:

    On how U.S. service compares with service in other developed countries

    [Cable companies] are extracting enormous rents, enormous profits, from what Americans perceive to be a basic service. And the competitive argument they make is a complete canard. If you tried to swap out your wireless connection or use your wireless connection instead of a cable connection for let's say, watching online video — so the average user of a wired high-speed Internet connection uses 50 gigabytes of data a month — if you tried to do that over a mobile wireless device you'd be spending 0 a month. That's because you may get wireless at about the same speeds, but [there are] very low capacity caps, data caps, on the usage of that connection. So it's not a substitute; it's a complement. We love mobile wireless services. It's never going to take the place of a wire.

    What's even more disturbing is that in other countries — I've visited both Seoul and Stockholm recently — they take these services for granted. For about a month they're getting gigabits symmetrical service, which is 100 times faster than the very fastest connection available in the United States and for a 17th of the price. It really is astonishing what's going on in America. Americans aren't quite aware of it because we don't look beyond our borders, but we're falling way behind in the pack of developed nations when it comes to high-speed Internet access, capacity and prices.
