We should invest in a national FTTH program as we did with the roadways under Eisenhower then reap the rewards of universal broadband access... said by coldmoon:
Internet access is no longer a luxury and ranks appropriately with other utility services as it is becoming ever more essential for our prosperity as individuals AND as a nation. Get over the luxury nonsense and start looking up from the usual talking points...
If it is such a necessity then everyone should be able to get it for $10 a month.

$10 a month? That would be nice, As to being poor what would You know? Me I know plenty, I'm poor, disabled and oh I have no debt, But then I get only SSI, nothing else. My DSL is $22.83 a month, What I'd like to do would be to rent a place near civilization w/o any steps and a place that allows pets, I have a cat and an empty aquarium, but I can't as the least expensive is $599 and they don't allow pets, I'd have to be a senior whose at least 55 and I'm only 51.5 now(I'm afraid She'd go outside and get run over anywhere where I can't keep Her inside where It's safe, She follows Me everywhere in the place I do rent thanks to a sympathetic owner), So My only other hope is getting a mortgage and buying a house for $60,000 or less. Oh and My PC? I slowly built that and the browser has a spell checker added to It as I'm disabled, I have a GED(My parents didn't believe in a college education, they were born in 1918 and 1922, both are dead now), just cause I can type a bit does not mean I can work, being disabled wasn't a choice I wanted, It was thrust on Me in 2003. I won't go into how I'm disabled, unless You want Me to bore Ya to death...
So Yeah I know what being poor is like, I took care of My Mom until She died in 1998, We shared expenses, later I helped My dying Brother for as long as I could.
