Tucows CEO tells why It's the Internet Stupid
Tucows’ CEO Elliot Noss explains the "It's the Internet Stupid" initiative to focus the upcoming National Broadband Plan on “faster, more affordable, more ubiquitous, more reliable connections to the Internet.”
As a signatory to the initiative, Noss believes it’s essential not to confuse “broadband” with access to the Internet. It needs to be spelled out explicitly to make sure that the plan meets the needs of ordinary citizens.
