Google’s Cerf urges wider Internet access

In the world according to Vint Cerf, Google’s “chief evangelist” and one of the Internet’s pioneers, broadband will be treated like a utility, with new infrastructure providing maximum benefit to the public and entrepreneurs seeking to harness it.”It’s not only broadband — it’s broadband access. …That’s important,” Cerf said today at an FCC workshop that will help the agency craft a sweeping national broadband plan to be presented to Congress in February. “If we want to maximize the utility of the broadband investment in the United States, [the Internet] needs to be very widely accessible.”
