A group of techie organizations recently sent a letter to legislators asking them to “consider at your earliest opportunity legislation introduced by Senator Rockefeller and Representative Eshoo to establish important national broadband goals for the United States.”
Here are the details:
What do they want?
Establishment of a national next-generation broadband goal of universal 10 megabit-per-second network capability by 2010 and universal 100 megabit-per-second network capability by 2015.
They don’t go into the details of how to provide such speeds but in the spirit of “first you gotta wanna”, I’m all over persuading legislators to make rules that help us want to get up to speed with our broadband coverage and bandwidth.
