I am not

one for being a cynical old bastard but,

If there are people who can't afford the internet (and I don't doubt that there are many) I assume that means they won't be able to afford a P.C. or whatever to access the 'net.

So are these folk going to get free (government approved of course, therefore naturally being loaded with all spyware known to mankind) devices so they can actually use the service? After all, most people know that, if it is free...

If so what would be the real cost?
