Use the money telecom has already been given How about they use all the money that telecom got 10 years ago when they promised 100% broadband ,45Mbps connections to every home, that was supposed to be completed 5 years ago.
Telecom is the greediest, sneakiest, most underhanded corporations on the planet. If anything they need less support from the government and more for the consumer.
Take away that last mile to the home and put it under utility laws where I can buy service from anyone, not just the local monopoly.
Only several hundred billion stolen by telecom, but who is counting.
