Disaster Capitalism: Separate the Wireline and Wireless Subsidies and Fix the Digital Divide.

America needs robust, ubiquitous, symmetrical, wireline fiber optic connectivity everywhere for everyone at reasonable rates, all the time.

  • The wireless plans in America, (and in NYC) are labeled, “unlimited”, yet most plans come with only 20–50GB. Unfortunately, the US plans are 6–10 times more expensive than overseas. Almost ½ of the Europe has true unlimited — over 1000GB, at half the price.
  • The price of America’s ‘triple play’ is now averaging over $200.00 and it costs 2–5 times more than overseas, where the average is about $45.00; there are packages at ½ the cost.
