Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Affordable Broadband?
Should it be the government’s responsibility to make affordable broadband Internet access available to everyone in the country? About 53 percent of Americans think not, or think that it shouldn’t be a top priority, according to a study released today by the Pew Internet & American Life Project. Only 11 percent think of it as a high priority. Interestingly, those least inclined toward government involvement are the 80 million currently without any Internet access at all.
