"Free" Broadband OnThe Way
As would be expected, some people want Obama's spending bill to provide broadband access to all California's households. One billion recently printed dollars are being eyed for that purpose by the powers- that- be.
I've said here before I think such efforts are an inappropriate use- if not a waste- of government money. While the article doesn't specify just what exactly this will entail, I get the sense this is hoped to be an ongoing subsidy for certain households, not a one- time expense. This is not good.
Sorry, as the article mentions, 96% of California households have access to high speed internet. That's good enough for me and I don't feel it fair to subsidize those living out in the boonies just so they can download porn movies rather than still pics.
From the looks of the comments to the Bee article, most seem to agree with me.
