sucky broadband

I’ve blogged before about my internet options and linked to charts showing that Americans pay more money for less bandwidth than just about every other developed nation in the world.

Lawrence Lessig makes this point (among others) in this speech at WiscNet Future Technology Conference. The larger context of this speech is the corrupting influence of money in government, but I’ve started right about the section where he talks about broadband.

I think the solution in this case (at least for minneapolis) is to build out the network that was made for our municipal wifi. I want to subscribe on principle, but at 6Mbps, it is not exactly fast. However, if I could have fiber to my house, then we’d be talking!
