musings-II

On an offshoot, John Kerry, US Presidential candidate said a while ago that if Bangalore in India can be wired then why not all of America? If only that were true! The internet scene in Bangalore is pathetically sad. All the residential plans are either time-based or download based, where download can be pretty much defined as usage, as in each and every page you open is counted in bytes and megabytes. Is this the same Bangalore that John Kerry was speaking of? Why is it that the ISPs in Bangalore feel that they must control how much people want to use their internet? Its sad to see such a state of affairs in a place known for its IT companies and advances in technology.
