I am working up my thoughts on the broadband meeting from last Friday morning. We appreciate Ron Berry and Darrell Meadows getting it together but nothing came out of it except a renewed feeling that service providers don't have any interest in serving rural America. The only people who count are shareholders.

Let's note that the Trump tax cut just gave Charter an $8.5 BILLION increase in profits in ONE QUARTER year over year. That is an obscene 17 times increase in profit. That they did not work to earn.

The solution is simple! Reinstate their original taxes and use that money to fund high speed internet to the entire nation.

The average internet speed for Tennessee is around 7 megs.

South Korea has an average of 26 megs.

More later.

America apparently hates Comcast
