Democrats tout broadband support

Convention platform cites support for universal broadband access

PC World teases out the little bit of tech in the Democratic Party's convention platform. It includes a brief mention of support for universal access to broadband.

Both Bush and Kerry have said more on the issue. Bush is betting on streamlining regulations and continued tax-free access to reach universal access by 2007. Kerry goes a little farther, advocating 20 percent tax credits for companies that invest in next generation networks.
