On the need for national broadband strategy

I meant to link before now to this article by Jim Baller on the need for a national broadband strategy.

What he says makes sense, but I just wish the Comcast "broadband" at my house worked at 4 MB, much less 70 MB. The night of the Super Bowl, it measured at 4K, which reminds that when I started at as a lawyer, our Westlaw connection was 2400.
