Re: 5G
That's a rather general statement--it has to do with commitment by Governments by in large.  If only especially in the United States this was the case--right?

Yes. VoIP tech was supposed to be an improvement over POTS, but... in my experience, the prioritization of VoIP data makes POTS almost sound like an audiophile's phonographic dream. The digital artifacts and dropped packets and lag -- all make VoIP calls nearly intolerable to listen to sometimes.

Meh. I doubt it. American trains are going to need to be completely revamped somehow in order to shake their bad reputation. About the only thing I can think of is a "Hyperloop train" system which would require a completely different boarding system -- more like an airport. That might provide a different enough experience that it wouldn't have the same reputation as traditional American trains.

The current American bus/train system is generally for "poor people" who can't afford their own car -- or a private driver of some kind (either Uber/Lyft or a real chauffeur).

@elizabethv:

"the way I currently look back on AOL-type technology."


So...with fondness? Or with a sense of "I can't believe I put up with that"?

Because I could see either way.

@Michelle: Trust me. Political corruption in Boston is a thing. Remember, this is the town that was once effectively run by Whitey Bulger.

Re: 5G
@elizabethv I hope so too. Funny, they can get a bullet train to a remote area of Colorado before they can get broadband to remote areas. And funny you should mention the Chunnel as I was just thinking of it while driving through the Lincoln Tunnel the other day, which I panic every time I do so. I was thinking to myself as the traffic kind of slowed down in the tunnel, I wonder how long it takes to get through the Chunnel, and how people can go through it and keep their sanity. Maybe I feel like I am in a sealled coffin where anything can happen but I don't like tunnels. How was that experience for you in the train through the Chunnel?

Re: 5G
@afwriter - That is such a true statement! I absolutely love my car! I can't imagine living in this country without it. The transit system just isn't on par to allow for sanity and going without a vehicle. But having been in Europe, I could easily live without a car. In fact, I doubt I would consider owning one at all. It was so nice to be able to walk such short distances to get from one place to a train station, get on a train and go to a completely different side of the city.

Re: 5G
Public transit in large communities doesn't have the best reputation. I like to think the problems are because of silly government rules and sluggishness, not corruption. That can't be all true of course.

Re: Interoperability
@afwriter - I think working together is going to revolutionize technology in ways we never imagined. I hope that in time, most systems will be far more compatible with one another than they currently are. With inter-operability we all only really stand to gain.
