Congressman Boucher says no to tiered internet

If you can read this, you probably agree with Congressman Boucher's column from The Hill stating his opposition to the telcos' efforts to create a multi-tiered Internet.

I know my Virginia blog friends frequently complain about Boucher, but I guess I was raised on his ideas about telecom and agree with maybe all of them. Indeed, I have written them down for him a couple of times - including this brief.

On a somewhat related note, I read today in the Coalfield Progress that the plan is in place to get the fiber optic lines to Rose Hill and a bunch of the other as-yet unserved places in Southwest Virginia. I applaud the people who made that happen, whatever their names or politics.
