i like the idea of the filter

if they want the porn they should pay for real Internet Twisted Evil
And if you want youtube you can pay for that and if you want to use google instead of msn search you can pay for that.

No filters.
Say NO to censorship of ANY kind! We are in America for petesake, that should mean something still!
According to ATT I don't have real internet, I have MediaNet, and according to ATT only the so-called Broadband Connect is real internet.

But I'm pretty damn happy with my $15/mo porn!!! $15/mo Phone Scoop to.

Jeez this guy is a nut! Okay so he's all for getting rid of smut and free speech. This was apparent in how he let Sirius and XM's merger rot and now this new company will never make a dime (because the hype behind satellite radio faded). Now he sells his morals (whatever morals they are) right out the window to get this grandiose idea of free wireless Internet approved by his counterparts. And why do we need free wireless Internet? Wireless access at the library, school, work, Starbucks, Borders, and most unlocked neighbor's access points not enough for you?

I'm so sick of utterly incompetent people being thrust into positions of power because they have a Masters degree from Harvard or their daddy got them the job or someone thinks they ...
Agreed that there is some wackiness to this guy, but many geniuses have been considered somewhat wacked!

I am not saying this guy is a genius in anyway. However, the push to have everyone wireless in the future makes this viable.
I think the more compelling question was raised in the first part of your response, and that is simply: Why sell out your morality for a dollar? When you take a stance on one side or the other of the morality issue, you may be dis-liked for your posit...
Radio is is local channels. Are they regulated as to content? Sure are. What makes this any different?

Modern day dial-up

This technically is not a bad idea. Many people today still use dial-up for their internet simply because their lifestyle does not require high-speed. This would actually be a wireless replacement and with higher speeds.
The carrier could offer this free internet as a bonus for signing on with them. Then the consumer can always switch up to high- speed later. It is all on how you market this.
people PAY for dial up so it would just shut down netzero and aol

Back to the government parenting.

It's actually not a bad idea. The only problem is many Americans can not parent, and therefore have the problem of having no filter on it. It leaves way too much responsibility for parents to watch their kids like parents are suppose to do *sarcasm*. If you want to view adult content then it is your business, and not up for someone else to decide how you see it. Censorship is a horrible policy.

"Bailout" waiting to happen

how long will AT&T/Verizon/Sprint give free internet before they says they need a $400billion bailout to keep offering free internet to poor people- not like anything like that has ever happened before Laughing
