Xplornet and Taxpayer funding (nov 2013)
This is for the year of 2012. Click below that(government funding in previous versions) for Tapayer funding received in 2011.
Funding provided to Xplornet, which is more about cutting their costs and hopefully also cutting end user costs.
Click the link as I am too lazy to fix the bad copy/paste.
12 month lobbying summery. Click on 'monthly communication reports' for government officials who have been historically communicated with. Then ask them questions on how they expected the money they eventually authorized to be spent on Internet'.
Subsidizing a corporation sucks dog shit.
Government agents giving taxpayer money to corporations without controls and exact specifications, is bogus.
Sure you got highspeed, but don't expect any quality of service guaranteed by the Government, who could easily take that money away in penalties for bad service or non-existent roll outs.
The lobbyists bang down the doors of the taxpayers safe, take a big load of money and people still get screwed over.
If a corporation can't exist using its own money to provide services, then close the doors and go away.
Instead of the government giving money direct to a private corporation, how about just send a check direct to the end user for having a second rate high speed internet connection. Like welfare, but without the middleman.
The U.S. communications corporations have rewritten laws in order to abandon telephone lines. Abandon roll outs of true high speed internet on wireline. Even get billions of dollars in taxpayer money and not have to actually use it on the end users.
Edit: Bell sued for 3/4 billion dollars for unlawful wiretapping.
Meanwhile, Bell is going to(nov 2013) violate privacy/wiretap laws by using deep packet inspection on all their services(won't record your phone calls but will save the numbers) in order to make more profit.
The Canadian government is already hoovering up all your communications via unlawful wiretaps.
The data collection actually began in 2002 under the George Bush jr presidency with all sorts of splitters on the internet fiber backbones. Details of it will be blacked out for another 40 years for 'security'.
Everyone is treated as a terrorist, which directly violates various Charter of Rights protections. The politicians are the real terrorists, but they'd prefer you be scared of the boooogeyman instead, so you don't question you and your kids being unlawfully molested in the airport or other forms of travel.
Hi Diddly Ho, Good Neighborino
