A government report estimates 68% of U.S. households had broadband access in 2010, up from 64% in 2009. However, only 57% of rural households, and 43% of low-income residents, had broadband. At the FCC's prodding, Comcast (CMCSA) and others have been launching inexpensive Internet plans for low-income households.

    What's this "low cost" nonsense.
    The poor should have it for free. In fact everybody should have it for free.
    The OWS crowd should demand it.

    I have Comcast, and I don't have any low-cost plan, and it's the only game in town where I live. I'm tired of paying for everyone else's cell phones and now internet. There's no such thing as a free lunch; somebody pays.
