Hometown plea for broadband

Thanks to Ann Higgins for the heads up on a great guest post on Broadband Breakfast – Join the Campaign to Bring Internet Home to Mom. It’s a very clever plea from Jennifer Clark, “ a full-time mother of two children, and has previously written for BroadbandBreakfast.com. She brings a keen understanding of community infrastructure together with a background in congressional politics and community issues. She has a Master’s in Education.”

She answers a question that I think all policymakers ought to consider: Why mom needs the internet?

It would help a lot of policymakers recognize that while home users don’t need broadband for 100 people – they often need connection powerful enough to do 100 things.
