Broadband is a laudable goal for all canadians, but it should be limited to 5 mbs down load and 1 mbs upload if there needs to be a subsidy to serve remote or difficult serving areas. These speeds offer essential capability for the digital age, as opposed to higher speeds which are nice to have. I think government should impose a tax whereby everyone helps to support a subsidy instead of service providers being obligated to fund it. However, as remote areas become less remote, there needs to be a mechanism established that removes the need for a subsidy in that case.
