Kind of like how tax payers subsidize education and police? Investment into faster Internet is like investing into roads and rails. It benefits all more than its cost to call
You are not seriously comparing roads to broadband are you? If so those who use the roads for commerce pay way more in road use taxes than a recreational user. If Apple and M$ want to sell subscriptions to their crap let them build it. Google the evile one is doing just that.
You argument has been proven false. Verizon built it, FiOS, and they didn't come. Those who have 50/50 FiOS use it for fun and games. You must not pay taxes. Did you notice the US is a financial pinch?
You all drank the kool-aid poured by MCI and parroted by this supposed forum now Ma Bell is dead any yet the people cry.
All you Apple fan-boys; get them to pay the $25 billion they are hiding off shore and build an iTune pipe; of course it will be opened to all leeches and below cost.
