This is why America is broken and will continue to fall behind. China doesn't care if you're rich or poor, eventually that fibre run will get to your door and you'll be lifted up like everyone else. Most countries are working on a Fibre to the Home network to lift all properties out of broadband poverty. Some time in the last 30 years people in the West decided fuck society you're on your own and the decline began. It was around this point that jobs started being off shored, people stopped caring about the togetherness of being a nationality. You stopped being Americans who sank or swam together and started being leaners and lifters who make an economy. While the West began disintegrating into rich and poor often sold as (those who work hard, and those who are stupid or who don't work hard enough), the Chinese locked onto a national purpose. Unification, one people one plan, the rise of national industry, a national pride that all Chinese (the vast majority at all socio-economic levels) bought into. Working together as a nation for the future progress of China. 30 years later we can see where America is: still unable to pass decent healthcare, rampant corporate corruption, the nation is 20 trillion in debt, disastrous trade/economic policies, crumbling bridges and infrastructure. Companies running amok with monopolies on even local governments being unable to roll out networks, and the average person is worse off than they were. Meanwhile China is building bullet trains, infrastructure, green cities, the world's fastest CPUs, five different CPU architectures one of which is indigenous to China, the largest manufacturing capabilities in the world, and they don't bitch about the poor holding back the rich or the fact that taxpayers are paying 50% into their companies (with 50% state ownership of most enterprises), instead they view it as an opportunity to build more wealth for China for the good of all Chinese.
