Re: What's So Bad?
said by Van:That is a huge problem with the government for letting it happen, and needs to be addressed. said by swintec:
If a government run network is going to be erected, it should be done so with a level playing field to that of private business.
Wait, you mean the "level playing field" of private businesses where the major ISP's spend millions/billions in DC and get special laws written their ways and/or significant tax breaks given to them and not given to others?

I think the fundamental question or outlook here is, is fiber high speed broadband really something that should be a public utility like water, roads, etc.? Should the government bear the cost and manage the buildouts? I really don't think we are there yet as a society. I don't think this is a top of mind burning issue for most people.
