Free Broadband but who

This proposal would allow Government to exert mass censorship on a whim, have mass visibility and effectively be Big Brother. Is this what people want to sign up to?

If broadband is supplied to all consumers and businesses by one business then that one business can see everyone's transactions. It also means that one business can control what you can and cannot view / have access to.
