Free Broadband Internet from Google & WASA!


Google WiFi Loving

Have you always hated the Comcast/RCN/Verizon triopoly of broadband Internet service providers in Washington DC?

Have you wanted to flush the poor service and hig fees? Well now you can, with the new Google TiSP!

As a partnership with the DC , Google will be brining high-speed Internet to DC starting today, according to the press release:

Google Inc. today announced the launch of Google TiSP (BETA)™, a free in-home wireless broadband service that delivers online connectivity via users’ plumbing systems. The Toilet Internet Service Provider (TiSP) project is a self-installed, ad-supported online service that will be offered entirely free to any consumer with a WiFi-capable PC and a toilet connected to a local municipal sewage system.

“We’ve got that whole organizing-the-world’s-information thing more or less under control,” said Google Co-founder and President Larry Page, a longtime supporter of so-called “dark porcelain” research and development. “What’s interesting, though, is how many different modalities there are for actually getting that information to you – not to mention from you.”

Now the connection method might be a little unorthodox, but the blazing fast connection at the rock bottom price of $0 cannot be beat. All you need is sewer access, working toilet or not, and a little faith. Or as Google TiSP says: Want WiFi Around? Just Flush It Down!

Thanks Google, I’m gonna do that myself, right about now!

    This isn’t anywhere near as funny if you happen to have conceived of a similar technology 10 years and now you’re watching Google muscle in on it:

    It’s so sad that April 1st is only celebrated on the internet these days.
