Here is the only thing that will come from the broadband plan:
Wired: Will you ask for a universal service fund for broadband?
Genachowski: The universal service fund over the last several decades has promoted near-universal deployment of telephone service in our country. It needs to be transformed to a broadband universal service fund. Thats the path that well lay out in the broadband plan, transforming it over time so that it doesnt support yesterdays communications technology but supports tomorrows. Well be suggesting options to do it over 10 years or faster.
Unfortunately, the usf will be revamped and expanded to increase the tax burden on internet users; cellphone users; and telephone users and the extra usf money will be doled out in those favored congressional districts so that the pols voting for this can send some pork to their home districts.
