Comment Re:We're looking to AUSTRALIA for advice on broadb (Score 1) 387

>>>Are you talking rural 'homes' or 'business'.

Which word did I use? That's right: "homes". Not farms or businesses. I wish people would learn to fucking READ what people write. Words means what words mean.

>>>If someone wants to go live in the country or retire there, why should I subsidize their broadband.

You shouldn't. Nor their electricity or phone. I've said that multiple time or many posts. - "I've heard the Greens/Environmentalists make the same argument - Stop subsidizing rural homes with cheap electricity and phone hookups (i.e. eliminate the Universal Service Fee)."
