No Government-Run Internet!
(1 min Audio Report – Faith2Action)
A government run internet?
There’s a trial balloon being launched by the Obama administration that needs to be shot down before it ever takes flight: Government run-internet.
President Obama went to Cedar Falls, Iowa yesterday to launch the idea of local governments providing internet services to their residents. He will also urge the Federal Communications Commission to strike down state laws which restrict cities from owning their own broadband networks.
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has already indicated he will likely strike down the state laws standing in the way.
Could a government-run internet squeeze out private providers who can’t compete with a taxpayer-funded provider? Could that affect our privacy even more? I for one, don’t want to find out.
