No, no, no

You want to take away the control over what is allowed on the internet from the 3-5 private companies that now have it and give it to the government directly? Sorry, but not me.

I'll stick with the mesh network that's being developed. Each person owns equipment that transmits their data outward in all directions for 1-4 miles. Every device that intercepts it can bid to send it on or not, depending on whether it was busy or not. Data is sent completely by the end users acting as relays to each other. Data throughput is massively increased, costs are dropped to zero (after buying the router or reconfiguring the cell phone) and authoritarian control is non-existent.

All we're waiting for is some standardization among the 4 (I think) competing technologies and it'll become just another app to download.
