Copps is in the minority on the FCC right now and that makes his frustration all the more visible.
From the story:
CNET: Looking at the state of broadband from the consumer perspective, is adoption at a good point right now?There is also excellent stuff to think about on the topics of universal service, municipal broadband (that's us, folks) and the digital divide.
Copps: Well, if I was a consumer I would say, 'Why in the hell is the United States No. 13 and heading south in broadband deployment? Why are folks in Korea and Japan maybe getting 10 times the capacity at a half or a third or a quarter of the price? I am paying for the slow setup I've got--that is called high-speed broadband?'
Worth the read.
