Re: Since I swtiched from ATT I don't go over 150gb

And for CAPS, the last time I checked DSL was served over phone lines and in some ( many?) cases phone lines payed for completely by tax payers.

No, they were not.

In any case, DSL does not impose any additional requirements for the "Last Mile" of copper in any manner that requires data caps.

As someone who spends a lot of time in poor rural areas I can tell you DSL is a major player in rural broadband. ( As in the only type south of where I live and west too )

Getting lines subsidized then offering capped and extremely slow broadband services over those lines is a little irksome.

Its a very simple principle.

There is not a rural telco in the US during the 90s-2000s that didn't take USF funds.
