It’s wild that the FCC still does not have its fifth commissioner and that the Biden administration is all shrugs about it.

@jdm Are broadbands taxated?

@odd I'm not sure I understand the question here.

@jdm I just wondered if that might be a reason not to do anything about the pricey monopolies* of broadband, but then they also have other responsibilities of course.

*)Starlink may have changed that, I’m not sure.

@odd I think the administration is just fundamentally not interested in governing. With regards to Star Link I don't think Low Earth Orbit satellites are a solution to dealing with the cable/fiber monopolies. Hardwire is pricey, but it's also worth it and you can get more throughput.
