[QUOTE=BradWright;2575055]I thought this story was about high speed internet access?
That said, I don’t think we need the costs for this being driven up with unnecessary government regulations and intervention. Internet speeds are dramatically increasing. Five years ago, the fastest connection I could get was 1.5 Mb/sec. Now I have 12 Mb, but can get 20, and other parts of town can get up to 40 Mb/sec. Google is actually experimenting with 1 Gb/sec speeds in a few cities. People in rural areas can get satellite service which is currently no as fast and is more expensive, but it also is getting cheaper and faster, and no government intervention has been required. The market will take care of itself.[/QUOTE]
And here I was thinking gigabit wireless was a few years away …
Either Obama is totally on the ball, or he’s throwing around catchy terms.
At any rate, regulation is required to ensure companies play ball together for the good of the consumers and country and not just the good of the companies involved.
