Title: Obama backs wider access to fast Internet

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — Wading into a states’ rights dispute over Internet access, President Obama called Wednesday for the repeal of laws that prevent communities from creating their own broadband networks.

Obama, for the second time in three months, cast himself as an antagonist to large cable and telephone companies that provide the bulk of the nation’s Internet service.

Obama said faster speeds would create jobs and allow local businesses to compete in the global economy. “Today high-speed broadband is not a luxury, it’s a necessity,” Obama said from a storage area at Cedar Falls Utilities, with shelves full of coiled wire and other equipment.

Obama is encouraging the Federal Communications Commission to preempt state laws that stifle competition and said his administration will work to cut red tape so more communities can get connected.

“In too many places across America, some big companies are doing everything they can to keep out competitors,” Obama said in Cedar Falls, which he credited with having one of the fastest networks in the world after fiber optic upgrades throughout the city. “Today, I’m saying we’re going to change that. Enough’s enough.”

Obama said his administration will provide technical and financial assistance to towns and cities that want to improve Internet service for their residents. The proposals do not require congressional approval and are part of a series of measures Obama is rolling out before his State of the Union address next week.

His stance is at odds with major cable and telephone companies such as AT&T, Comcast and Time Warner Cable that provide Internet service, often with little or no competition. Obama has already angered the industry by calling for FCC rules that treat Internet service providers as public utilities.

Well good for O'Bummer!
He bet the GOP to the punch again...
If it were up to the cable companies, they'd make you pay an arm & a leg for 2400 baud dial-up modem access.

What the hell does that imbecile know about high speed internet. He declares it a necessity. He's full of beans. I still use dial-up and it works fine, but is slow.

I can't use High speed internet because the apartment and adjacent wiring produces a TDR (Time Delay Reflection). What is desirable is an intermediate speed internet that would be very fast for serious practical work, but wouldn't be subject to self interference problems.

Something as simple as relaxing rules for providers, and making rules that favor competition would go a long way towards lessening the price, and raising the quality.
