Broadband Access Still Plagues Users

What’s wrong with US broadband?

The state of US broadband is bad. We already know huge portions of the country aren’t getting broadband speeds — but even where they are, those connections are often bogged down by limited options, predatory billing practices, and a general lack of choice.”

I personally think Fiber should be subsidized though are costs associated with Fiber deployment that the article suggests leads to our current billing:

In the case of internet access, that technology is satellite internet. The economics of laying fiber encourage this kind of rent-seeking, so maybe escaping fiber will let us build a better kind of telecom?

It seems like wireless access is not a sure fire answer either. I think this requires government regulation and investment in infrastructure to aid the market and provide better choice to users.
