        This is a serious problem for anyone who doesn't live in a city, and 
the ISPs as well are
oblivious to the issue.  Take Google, whose Gigabit Internet initiative (though 
it has
good intentions) boosts bandwidth in (so far selected) cities, while completely 
rural users.  Every time there is a jump in bandwidth availability (in cities),
webmasters and media developers immediately fill that bandwidth with junk.  
First we had
email, then email with embedded HTML, then commercial (90% text) HTML, then 
HTML with
JavaScript, then text replaced by video clips (software manual?  Just watch our 
videos!), and on and on.  For people who don't live in a city, very such 
"advance" makes
it take longer to read an article, shop online, or interact with health care or
        It's infuriating, and there seems to be no way to curb the trend.
