Telcom and cable companies will never allow this to happen.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Well that's the thing, isn't it--they can lobby all they want, but if/when the federal government decides that it's happening no matter what, it's happening. I can't imagine how much politicking and deal-making and threat-making will go on behind closed doors on this issue.
I would love to see this happen. But let's face it, the GOP will take bribes from Big Business as usual, and prevent average (and especially poor and non-White) Americans from having free, open, public wi-fi. There's a reason they're called the Grand Obstructionist Party.
When it comes to government spending I lean pretty far to the right. This however I believe is a time where the government is doing the right thing. This is about access. Even people like me who can afford it have limited access because of where I live. I am stuck paying comcast whatever they demand because there is no alternative other than satellite which is much slower and cost much more. Combine that with the overpriced tiered mobile data plans and you have put the wired world out of reach for a lot of people. This is an idea that could put this country in a more competitive position.
