NY Times editorial on Broadband

An editorial in the Mar 29 2008 New York Times notes Earthlink's turnabout in Philadelphia, and calls for continued efforts to bring universal access.

The article concludes:

Broadband service is no longer a luxury. It has become a basic part of the infrastructure of education and democracy. EarthLink should fulfill the commitments it made. Even in these tough economic times, cities should keep pushing municipal Wi-Fi and looking for partners and plans that can make it a reality.

People in the USA are afraid of disturbing asbestos in their walls if they run new cables! This is why we need cash for shanties, to get rid of slums which cripple minorities with childhood asma and cancer. This is why we need free advertising based wimax to supply broadband during the pandemic.
