Broadband should be a public utility.
Public utilities are lousy at delivering high-tech services.
What’s the difference between water and the Internet? Internet gets faster, cheaper, and more innovative over time, while water... pretty much stays the same. Water, electricity and other utility providers charge a lot for standardized products. They’re slow to innovate because they’re monopolies, and regulation protects them from competition. Broadband providers are constantly pushing the boundaries of technology to keep pace with exploding demand. If you regulate broadband like you regulate water, competition will evaporate — and with it, the incentive to keep upgrading networks. Your water stays the same, and so does your electricity, but do you really want your Internet frozen in time?
