USA National Broadband policy?

lol - funny article that I thought was an interesting adjunct from my post the other day about planned economies (
You'd be forgiven for thinking that the US doesn't have a comprehensive national broadband policy. FCC Commissioners Michael Copps and Jonathan Adelstein don't think we have one either, and you'd expect them to know if such a thing existed. Yesterday's report from the academic technology group EDUCAUSE also lamented the lack of a comprehensive strategy and laid out a powerful, practical vision of fiber to every home.

Check out the comments in the forum, I thought this one was my personal favourite;

Plus, if they speed up internet too much the NSA will have to learn to read faster as well. That means a raise in pay, plus more Workers Compensation claims for eye fatigue on projects that "are too top secret for actual information regarding eye strain on the job".

Lol - and people wonder why I look at them funny when they say America is the worlds only real super power.
