So does this mean that I'll get faster, better service?
Does this mean that I'll lose the service I now have?
Will the price skyrocket?
One of those three. I live in a rural area, as does much of the country. We have a big country. This is not some piddling small urbanesque country like they have in Europe with short distances. The USA has vast distances between homes and businesses in the rural areas.
Basically what I hear him saying is he only wants to subsidize the urbanites and to hell with the rural folks. Typical bureaucrat. They are from the cities and don't understand the real world outside their borders.
The reality is I already pay $130/month for what costs about $20/month in the city but I only get 1.5Mbps rather than the 25Mbps they get in the urban areas. I suspect that rather than getting better service I'll simply lose what I have. When a piece of hardware goes down the phone company, the only ISP around, will just not replace it leaving a black hole in the telecommunications landscape. No cell. No landline. No internet.
