More than 20 million Americans lack “meaningful broadband service” as people turn to the internet for school and work during the coronavirus crisis, Virginia Sen. Mark Warner warned federal regulators. “Under the current circumstances, this lack of broadband access threatens to greatly—and potentially lastingly—exacerbate disparities in health, education and economic equity,” said Mr. Warner, a Democrat, in a letter to Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai on Thursday. He noted that 770,000 Virginians don’t have broadband access. Mr. Warner urged the FCC to take immediate steps to help close the “digital divide,” including relaxing restrictions on signal contours in rural and exurban areas,

Comments:

How much money did Verizon, ATT, Comcast, etc "donate" to this crook's campaign? Not content with charging US customers the highest fees in the world for internet and cellular connectivity, with poor speeds relative to other developed nations, these companies lust after additional customers whose bills are paid by taxpayer money. It's obscene.

Warner's a putz. From what I understand, Elon Musk's Starlink is supposed to "fill the gap" w hi speed service. Many satellites already in low earth orbit. Not sure of govt. interference.

And I lack access to mansions, limousines, yachts, and body guards like you have, Mr. Bigshot Senator. And that leads to disparities in my "economic equity." You gonna take immediate steps to give me yours?

Another Democrat reacting, not being pro-active. He's only now noticing that 770,000 Virginians don't have access to broadband? What has he been doing the last few years? I guess he was too busy with impeachment the last couple of years, despite likely knowing the Steele Dossier was bogus Russian misinformation, bought by Hillary campaign, and then used against Trump.

Every month my bill adds a fee to pay for internet access for those that can't afford it, and it's been on there for as far as I can remember 20 years or more. For the amount of money we pay for internet, downloading anything should be done in less than a second. Now, if I want faster internet speeds, Verizon will allow me to get it for $100 bucks more a month. I could understand paying the amount of money I pay now when they were laying lines and setting up the infrastructure, but not now. It's all greed not a reasonable profit.

That means that 94.2% of the population does have access to high speed internet. Wonder where exactly that 5.8% of the population lives. Somewhere north of Fairbanks, in the remoter sections of the Rockies, in the denser hollows of Appalachia? I am guessing that that last 5% lives in areas where transmission lines are exorbitantly expensive to route.

Apparently internet access is a right enshrined in the Constitution now? I don't recall ever seeing where it is the government's responsibility to make sure that everyone has broadband internet. Go to the public library and use their computers. Yes, you can't do it right now but as we keep being told by politicians, we must all make sacrifices.

While Sen. Warner is indeed a flawed, progressive messenger, the problem of reliable internet access is very real. If it can be resolved by relaxing some overzealous regulations, probably put in place by Warner's fellow progressives, then it should be. Choosing to live in a rural area to avoid the big Blue cities while raising some livestock and growing vegetables to supplement the family larder and trade with like-minded friends is typically not looked down upon by conservatives; however such a choice most often leaves only HughesNet or one of its satellite clones as the only source for millions of Americans to be digitally connected. My college student son and elementary student daughter both have significant on-line school requirements that necessitate at least modest bandwidth. They are students; neither are "gamers." We're not talking about roughing it in the wilds of Alaska but less than 150 miles from the four most populous cities in Texas. I'd pay more than the current $500/month I already pay but I'm maxed out on what I'm allowed to have. The company blames "federal regulations" for the service restrictions.

The director of a lab studying the coronavirus in Wuhan—the Chinese city where the global outbreak is believed to have originated—denied that the bug accidentally spread from his facility. “There’s no way this virus came from us,” Yuan Zhiming, director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, told state media on Saturday. Yuan’s denial came days after a fresh round of reports suggesting the novel coronavirus escaped from the Wuhan Institute or another similar laboratory miles away in the Chinese city. President Trump was asked about the possibility at a White House press briefing last Wednesday and said the US was investigating the origins.
