  *Slaves of the telecom overlords   

 So infuriating. My work studio is in Bushwick, a neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY. My *only* option for high speed internet is TimeWarner. They have exclusive rights to this part of the neighborhood, apparently. And as the building I’m in is commercially zoned, I can only have a business account, where the rates for service are eye-poppingly expensive. To wit, for 35 mbps down by 5 mbps up (the minimum I need for my practice), I will be paying $207 a month.   Talk about overloads.
