Telecoms and TV Want to Kill America’s High-Speed Internet
Ben Popper:

The United States may have invented the internet 25 years ago, but when it comes to web access, it is on a downward slide. The U.S. international broadband ranking, which measures speed, price and availability, has been falling every year since 2001, putting American business at a global disadvantage.
