And Will Fail. Government taking over broadband will saturate it and deliver a lower quality product than if in the hands of private companies.

Plus, 768k in 10 years!??!?! Comcast and Verizon have 50,000k hsi THIS YEAR. what will the point be then?
so are you saying that the private sector has produced a good product? this nationwide broadband is not meant to replace the comcasts and verizons or at&t's out there. i know my grandma would love to get something like this. think about it. it may be slow but it could easily replace the remaining dialup users.

Indeed. This would be a great replacement for my 26k.

Although there are some problems with the major ISPs, they still have done a far superior job than a government run agency would have.

Everyone has a service outage once in a while; poor weather, wiring, network upgrades, etc. Would government run broadband work any better?

Does this mean there will be more spamming, scammers, typhoid marys and people who just don't give a shit.
