USA - "Free Wifi" If You Let Us Censor It
LA Times Article Discussing It
Article With Some Technical Details
Okay, for those of you who don't know about this I'll outline what I've seen so far.
The FCC wants to section off a part of the broadband "spectrum" in order to have a government controlled, and regulated, means of internet access. This will, in turn, be offered to lower income families who request it.
So we have a situation in which access to information is being partially controlled by the government directly for the sake of the poor; in exchange for selective access to that information.
What's everybody's thoughts on this?
