Should the access to the internet be dependent on your ability to pay?
No, it isn't a right.
You mean pay somebody other than Comcast that furnishes us the capability of using high speed internet?
Not a right, more of a product.
If you can't pay the bill you don't get the internet.
The ISP .
No, but I do feel it's pathetic that millions of people (and businesses) in rural areas can't get reliable broadband access no matter how much they're willing to pay. Some things should be done not because they are a "right", but because they are the right thing to do. Rural access is one of those things.
It is available if it doesn't matter how much they are willing to pay.
Broadband through satellite. Although quite expensive from what I've heard.
For years I had to use HughesNet satellite if I wanted something better than dial up. That's about all it was- something better.
Very expensive, and not reliable. Especially in mountainous or wooded areas. It seems to be more sensitive to obstructions than satellite tv.
Is there a reason rural homes cannot get DSL?
