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.
