If we want to keep the Internet universally accessible and free of censorship, we’d better raise our voices now, say Craig Aaron and S. Derek Turner
The Internet is transforming our lives. It has revolutionized commerce, entertainment, politics and how we interact with each other and the rest of the world. A “broadband” connection is no longer a luxury — it’s a public necessity.
Internet access may not be as important as water. But it’s now right up there with hot water.
Yet given how important broadband is to the future of our economy, our educational system, even our democracy, there is amazingly little public discussion about it.
