Thursday Toon Roundup 1- The Noose gets tighter

























Even the telco industry thinks Ajit Pai is an asshole for maiming Lifeline


Ronald Reagan created the Lifeline program, which gives low-income Americans a $9.25/month subsidy to spend on one of: landline, broadband, or wireless access.

The vast majority of Lifeline recipients get their service through MVNOs (mobile virtual network operators), who resell major carriers networks through a wide variety of tailored packages targeted at people too poor for the big companies to bother with.

Now, Trumpís FCC chairman, Ajit Pai, wants to force Lifeline users to buy access from the big telcos, a move even those very same telcos think is bananas. And as a group of US 10 US senators have pointed out, Pai offered no evidence to support his contention that MNVOs strangle broadband investment (the FCC is only allowed to act on the basis of documented evidence), and Paiís proposal would eliminate the plans used by more than 70% of Lifeline recipients.

Access to networked communications is a prerequisite for employment, education, family, political and civic engagement and more. When Pai sharpens the digital divide by maiming Lifeline, he is depriving the poorest people in America of a literal lifeline.
