In 10 short years, the Internet has become a crucial part of our lives, yet many Americans don't have access to it, or, if they do, that access is not good enough for today's graphics-rich content. The FCC today announced an aggressive plan to bring "robust service" to every nook and cranny of the country.

The National Broadband Plan was mandated by the ARRA, aka the stimulus package. The goal? "All Americans should have access to broadband service with sufficient capabilities, all should be able to afford broadband and all should have the opportunity to develop digital literacy skills to take advantage of broadband."

The price? The FCC claims it will be revenue neutral, with revenue from auctioning off some frequencies in the TV broadcast spectrum.
