So those tyrants at the FCC have “cobbled together” an “initiative [sic for ‘compulsory deal to which the cable companies they regulate must agree’] to get more U.S. homes connected to broadband.”
Said “initiative” consists of “offer[ing] Internet service for $9.95 per month to homes with children that are eligible for free school lunches.”
But while the industry — and we customers whose revenues pay its bills — must pony up, Our Rulers don’t have to. Though “the companies are pledging to charge nothing for installation or modem rental,” the $9.95 doesn’t include taxes.
Oh, Leviathan, you never disappoint! Always the biggest, slimiest greedball and hypocrite on the planet!1:01 pm on November 9, 2011 Email Becky Akers
