said by Cod:I am not going to flame you on your opinion, however, all those things that you just mentioned can be handled in other ways. Also, you can go to the public library and use the computers there.
Maybe in ten years when certain things become a necessity like online voting, strictly online banking, etc become the norm, then maybe it will become a right. But even then, most of that stuff can still be performed by dialup.
Additionally, I'd rather see healtcare a "right" before broadband internet. If business wants to move the public to the internet, then business should be penalized by levees or taxes to help advance broadband deployment.
I dunno, my 75 year old grandmother, on a fixed income has to pay $10 more to purchase an airline ticket by telephone simply because she doesn't have a computer, understand them, or in general can't afford internet broadband at%55.00 a month.
I think priorities are not in line yet.
