Copps said that, beyond debates on technologies, the FCC would look at coming up with standards for speed and guidelines for what places are most in need of high-speed Internet service. The agency would also focus on demand issues, such as why more than three times as many people in urban areas are not connecting to high-speed Internet service compared with those in rural areas.
Copps may be in the driver's seat for the moment, but President Obama's nominee for FCC chief is Julius Genachowski, who once served as chief counsel to the FCC chairman before moving into the private sector.

I think we should give a bunch of money to the telcoms. That worked out great last time. Right?
Why dont they give you a tax break, or pay for 90% of your internet bill, if you install a wireless N router in you house and dont put a password on it... Now theres an Idea!

^Sounds good to me! The wireless card in my upstairs bedroom PC is showing 15 wireless networks, but only one of them is not secure (but it is too weak). I could save a bundle of money if they followed Der's suggestion!

Maybe if we didn't use our military we could spend $43 billion on our broadband like Australia. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7986918.stm Not that I'm suggesting we do that, then I'd be out of a job...
On a serious note. Its the last mile issues that we really have. I think if the 3G services were not so costly that they would be a decent option. A bit high of a ping for gaming, but for normal internet use it is great.
