Obama’s “National Broadband Plan”: Yet Another Bad Idea from Obama

President Obama recently announced his so-called “National Broadband Plan.” The supposed goal of this plan is to “make America’s nationwide broadband infrastructure the world’s most powerful platform for economic growth and prosperity.”

Unfortunately, as I pointed out in this piece in the Las Cruces Sun-News, Obama’s efforts to use the federal government to expand broadband are both misguided and in direct contradiction to his other cherished “Net Neutrality” policies which would again increase federal control over the Internet.
