The Net as a Public Utility | Personal Democracy Forum

Harold Feld of Public Knowledge has treated us to a classically styled speech that advocates thinking about broadband as utility. He uses Verizon's post Hurricane Sandy debacle as a jumping off point but takes the argument much further. It's a real treat to listen to someone just say what needs to be said without hesitation or reservation...

Of course, even better than national policy that understands broadband as a utility (about which Feld is right) would be actually having an actual, democratically controlled local utility. 

Like LUS Fiber.
