The Federal Communications Commission started work on a plan to deploy broadband to all citizens. While the FCC is soliciting feedback to determine what polices should be included in the roadmap, the overall goals of making it avaible to the entire nation, enhancing the quality of service and lowering the overall cost are the tentpoles of this iniaitive. Funding for this plan would be provided paritially by the $7.2 billion dollars earmarked in the stimulus bill passed by congress.
At Fastcase, we can barely recall the days when we were forced to use dial up internet access. What do you think of this FCC iniaitive? Leave your feedback in the comments!
