We Need a National Investment in Broadband Internet. $100 Billion Is a Good Start.

Imagine if we could put every area of America on an even playing field when it comes to high-speed internet.

In the months after World War I, Dwight Eisenhower—who had been stuck stateside during the conflict—accepted a relatively modest assignment: He was tasked with overseeing the first transcontinental military convoy and reporting to his superiors the state of America’s roads, bridges, and byways. The trip, consisting of 79 Army vehicles and 297 personnel, crossed 3,200 miles. The experience was an eye-opener for the young officer.

The convoy was repeatedly slowed by roads in terrible condition. Many were unpaved. Bridges were old and often too low for trucks. Eisenhower could see clearly how road quality directly affected the mobility of a moving army—or any vehicle. The lessons never left him, and his fascination with highways, logistics, and national defense led him, as president four decades later, to champion and launch the interstate highway system.

Today’s internet is as critical—if not more so—to our nation’s economy and security as roads and highways were in Eisenhower’s time. And our internet infrastructure is similarly ragged and uneven. Even now, it’s choked by slow speeds or no access at all in significant portions of the country. While a great number of Americans are relying on high-speed broadband to conduct meetings, see their doctors, study with their teachers, and stream the latest shows, roughly 21 million Americans in 2019 had no fixed broadband service and therefore are stuck on the backroads with no on-ramp to the highway nearby. For many of them, it’s a simple fact of geography: They live in rural areas where broadband providers say it’s too expensive to serve. Or, alternatively and commonly, they can’t afford it.

Google Announces $1 Billion Dollar Investment Into The Future Of News

After spending the better part of the last decade choking every possible cent from the digital media industry, Google’s finally getting the heat that it deserves. More and more people are realizing the company’s monopoly over digital advertising is one of the culprits behind a staggering number of newsroom layoffs. Regulators are realizing this digital dominance could constitute a serious antitrust issue. Combined, that means a massive headache for Google that can, in the company’s eyes, be solved with one thing: a decent payout.

The company’s latest attempt to claw back some goodwill among publishers is a three-year, billion-dollar partnership that’ll go toward the company’s newest product, the Google News Showcase. CEO Sundar Pichai unveiled the Showcase in a company blog post earlier today, promising it would highlight the “editorial curation of award-winning newsrooms” while also helping those newsrooms manifest “deeper relationships” with their readers.

Showcase is first debuting in the standalone Google News app for Android, with an accompanying rollout for iOS users coming “soon.” As the name implies, the app will literally start “showcasing” the top stories of the day as a carousel beneath the app’s personalized daily brief. Alongside the headlines, these stories will show summaries of the story in question, related articles, and more. And according to Pichai’s post, similar showcase-y features are set to come to Google’s Discover feed and Search engine “in the future.”

I know it sounds pretty similar to the average app most of us use for reading news on our phone right now. But Pichai wants you to believe that Showcase—which is being test run with roughly 200 “leading publications” across Canada, the EU and Latin America before a wider rollout in the future—isn’t just
