Toilet Internet Service Provider (TiSP)
When you first read this you might think its a joke but then you begin to question yourself because of the source (Google). Google has thousands of PhDs on staff and this concept seems absolutely doable over an old pipe infrastructure. After reading the detailed instructions I began to accept the impossible and started to believe it was true. After all, the concept seems very analogous to powerline networking where data traffic is routed through your electricity switches within your home.
How does TiSP (Toilet Internet Service Provider) work? The Google TiSP (BETA) is a fully functional, end-to-end broadband wireless system that provides in-home Wifi access by connecting your toilet-based TiSP wireless router. The router connects to one of the thousands of TiSP Access Nodes via fiber-optic cable strung through your local municipal sewage lines. Why should I switch to Google TiSP? It's free, fast & delivers a 10x higher flow rate than basic DSL (even after your morning dump). Its also vacuum sealed to prevent water and pipe damage.
However, until seeing the press release dated April 1, 2007 my head sank into my lap after the time I had wasted wondering why there wasn't more press on the idea. However, I am not giving up on the concept because there are millions of people who just might take a little more satisfaction over the commode knowing they are contributing to the disruption of a telecom oligopoly. Still a believer and think someday it might come true. . . read more Google hoaxes.
