GOP's broadband agenda

Delegates at the Republican National Convention add broadband to their list of policy agendas.

Delegates at this week's Republican National Convention spelled out their domestic policy on broadband, setting a goal of giving all Americans affordable access by 2007, according to IDG News Service.

The document circulating around the convention advocated a moratorium on broadband access taxes to spur growth as its central pillar. It noted that the amount of spectrum for wireless broadband nearly doubled since the Bush administration began its term, IDG said.

For a perspective on where Bush and Kerry stand on broadband, I'll point again to John Borland's detailed breakdown in a recent CNET special report.
