Obama pushes not just internet access, but HIGH-SPEED for ALL Americans


Almost 90% of the U.S. would have high-speed internet access by 2020, under a plan unveiled by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The agency said the National Broadband Plan would ensure that the U.S., where the Internet was invented, did not fall behind other countries with faster and cheaper internet service. The goal is to give at least 100 million Americans internet access that would be up to 25 times faster than the current standard.

The FCC proposes to reclaim part of the frequency spectrum now reserved for television signals and auction it off to companies selling wireless Internet access. The plan faces resistance from broadcasters which want a share of auction proceeds.

A "push" for 90% of Americans to have Internet access by 2020? Odd, ONLY when a black man is in the White House that it becomes a priority that nearly "all" Americans have internet access. At the time Bush left office, something like only 30% of black Americans have/had internet access. Now that Obama is in office, HE pushes for Internet access for all Americans.... and that, my friends, includes black Americans. Something we NEVER had before.

People talk a lot of b.s. about Obama, but quietly, surely, Obama is making a place for us, ensuring that WE not be left behind.... and without the b.s. rhetoric and fanfare.

It's like Salehdin always said: "It's chess, not checkers."


P.S.

And "25 times faster" than we have now? Halleluah! :lol:
