Re: Where are the details?

the commercial entities have been using the hundreds of millions of dollars that the USF generates as a corporate slush fund to line their own pockets and add to their profit.

How is that any different from a Gov entity using profits from an alternate utility from an ethical standpoint.

The USF should go away and I agree that that is no better than gov't cross-subsidization. As I have stated here numerous times.

Private companies also use other divisions within their corporate umbrella to prop up poor performing products and services, maybe we should ban private entities from doing that as well?

Also, if a city or town has extra money from other projects/collections and wants to use it for broadband then they should be able to use it how the elected officials see fit. That is their job!

No. Private entities have finite boundaries on resources. Governments have much more latitude to prop up failing policies. The argument often is this unfair competition between public/private efforts.
