It is true we need to move forward with an overall plan for a 'proper' networked infrastructure here in the US. What's also true is that the entities who either plan and or distribute said network should be at the table proposing strategies. Ideally, aforementioned 'entities' would ditribute said network to everyone equally based solely on demand. Who pays for this and who is 'in charge' are in truth, one & the same.
Any imbalance will only be from a monetary standpoint, and not necessarily a user's.
What we need to be mindful of is that the govt. and it's 'entities', as it were, will be the ones using the best connections running hardware we can only dream of. THAT is what I am afraid of.
