In the last decade, broadband Internet has gone from being a luxury to nearly a necessity for many people. If you want to cut your cable and stream online video through a service like Netflix, you need a fast Internet connection.
Add in other people in your home watching YouTube, streaming audio, playing online games, browsing through image-heavy websites and you need all the Internet bandwidth you can get.
Unfortunately, as we've talked about before, broadband Internet is expensive and not available everywhere. You might live in a less-developed area where the best you can get is slow DSL, dial-up or bank-account-busting satellite.
You might want fast fiber Internet, but the cable company is charging too much to run the fiber to your house, or doesn't plan on getting to your area for years. Maybe you ordered Internet, but have to wait a week for the technician to come out and install it.
These are just some of the frustrations people have with current Internet providers and technologies. However, change could be on the horizon.
