Saturday, March 7
11 a.m. | An organization called InternetforEveryone.org hosts a town hall meeting on the future of the Internet, Durham Marriott Convention Center, 201 Foster St., Durham. Contact: Lindsy Embree, 413-585-1533, ext. 306.

The Service Employees International Union, ACLU and ACORN are just a few of the sponsoring organizations.

This from the InternetforEveryone website:

Laying a nationwide network for high-speed Internet access is estimated to cost tens of billions of dollars at the very least.


The United States could also consider adopting the type of matching-grant program used in Canada, where the federal government, the province and the network owner each contribute one-third of the funding for every broadband construction project.

Get ready for high speed taxes.
