Internet & Networking A free, new report from the New America Foundation compares cost, speed, and availabilty of internet connectivity in 22 cities around the world. The report concludes that U.S. consumers face comparatively high, rising connectivity costs, even while the majority have very limited choices -- often only one or two providers. The report argues that U.S. broadband policies need to change, otherwise consumer choice will continue to deteriorate.

Why do people need to have free highspeed access. I already pay $3 a month so some lazy bum can get free phone. I then pay another $3 a month so some lazy bum can get free internet. The job of the government is not to give away free stuff to people who won't work. There is no basic need for internet by the way. Not even a right to have a phone. One can do without those.
