Sanders boldly claims that he will have affordable high-speed internet in every United States household by the end of his first presidential term. Sen. Bernie Sander believes the internet needs to be treated like a utility that everyone has the right to have access to.
“The Internet as we know it was developed by taxpayer-funded research, using taxpayer-funded grants in taxpayer-funded labs. Our tax dollars built the Internet and access to it should be a public good for all, not another price gouging profit machine for Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon. Their greed must end.” – Bernie Sander
Sanders plans to provide $150 billion in funding to help build out the infrastructure. The expansion of broadband service will help create more competition in the service providing industry.
