The $200 Billion Broadband Scam

Bruce Kushnick's new book points out that while Ed Whiteacre, Ivan and Bill Smith complain about not getting enough of the pie with DSL, they forget that we paid them $200B, yes, $200 BILLION, for a 45MB fiber optic network already. Every rate hike for the last 10 years was based on rolling out FTTx - going back to 1996!!! Buy the book. It's just $20, it's a comprehensive story, and Bruce has been fighting for you for 10 years. Muniwireless has a review. TechDirt has a blurb. Isenberg wrote about it. Book synopsis here.
