Free broadband for all...

I read this on the paper (yes, I do read paper sometimes) and had to find this online to quote and link. But here it is at the USA Today:


High-speed Internet access is so important to the welfare of U.S. consumers that America can't afford not to offer it — free of charge — to anybody who wants it, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin says.

"There's a social obligation in making sure everybody can participate in the next generation of broadband services because, increasingly, that's what people want," he says.

Martin hopes to use a chunk of wireless airwaves due to hit the auction block next year to help turn his vision into reality. Some cellphone operators are objecting.


"Some cellphone operators are objecting". O'RLY?

We are not even close to this yet, here in New Zealand.
