Could you live without broadband at home? I don’t know if I could, but Apple co-founder and Gizmodo hero Steve Wozniak can. That’s what he has recently said in Australia talking about his home in Los Gatos, California:
I don’t have broadband at my home. I, Steve Wozniak, don’t have broadband at my home. I live one kilometre out of the main part of town. Broadband is a monopoly in my town — that means you can get it from a cable company, but I don’t have cable. There are 50 companies that want to sell me DSL, but they’ve all got to go through the Horizon wires — the local phone company — and I’ve got one of the two worst Horizons in the country. And so I can’t get broadband in my house.
So how does the Woz live without wired internet access? Wireless access, of course: smartphones, tablets and computers connecting through 3G and LTE. [News.co.au]
