Web service Google Fiber pulls service from Louisville due to challenges out there that disrupted customer service.
Brittney Jackson, Louisville Courier Journal

Do you get the sensation Google Fiber never really beloved us to start with? 

Yeah, we had a quick fling with the low-value internet entry. Dinner and a few films. Perhaps even a concert and an extended weekend together.

Binging on Netflix on the couch. 

And now, she’s damaged up with us. By way of social media. Complete with a crying emoji. 

At the least the parents at Google Fiber didn’t give us the previous, “It isn’t you, it is me” line.

They really didn’t give us something. Except, within the finish, tiny ruts in our streets.

They have not advised us what’s actually behind the corporate’s choice to dump us — and just earlier than Valentine’s Day — past some obtuse vagaries about “technical challenges” and different corporate mumbo jumbo. 

Background: Google Fiber made ‘robust choice’ to tug service from Louisville

Give it to us straight. We will take it. 

Don’t you owe us that a lot? 

Why are you leaving us with Spectrum and AT&T — solely for use many times as they separate us from our money but actually don’t care about us?

We have heard their come-ons earlier than about their cable internet access and then DSL and their buffering, buffering, buffering, buffering, buffering. Bunch of gold diggers.

And now AT&T has no cause to hurry up development of its fiber optic network here. Or minimize prices to compete.

What did we do to deserve this? 

We allow you to are available here and tear up our streets, and you reward us by tearing out our hearts? 

Positive, we had our issues. 

The town’s parking Nazis didn’t help once they went in and ticketed individuals without warning for blocking your entry to curbs in the Highlands. It made you seem like the demanding, jealous sort.

And you were not good either, what together with your routing out our streets, stuffing the little trenches with fiber optic wires and then filling them in with some rubberized material that didn’t stand up to cold winters and scorching summers. 

I feel we will agree that neither of us have been with out fault. 

And we perceive. Kansas City, Missouri, was your first. And who wouldn’t be enamored by sunny Southern California, the hipness of Austin, Texas, or even the North Carolina Research Triangle?

However I mean, actually, what does Provo, Utah, and Huntsville, Alabama, have that we don’t have? Why can you go forward with inexpensive excessive-velocity internet there and not here? 

How come you’ll be able to construct 6-inch deep micro-trenches in these cities — which appear to work — however solely 2-inch deep trenches here? Apparently, measurement does matter.

But what really hurts is you never advised us this wasn’t working and never gave us the prospect to get it proper.
