Speed is relative. Internet speed is extremely relative, which is why Verizon has been touting the impressive speeds that their network is providing to users. The problem is that they may not be spreading the message as well as they would if they simply came out and gave us real numbers.
That’s been the complaint about their advertising for a while now, and Saturday Night Live is right there to express our concerns. How much faster is it than 3G? Where is the network strong and where is it still being developed? These questions and others are beautifully dodged by the SNL team in their recent satirical clip.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvL8WBrNHEk[/youtube]
