I don’t think that the government should provide free wifi. However, I think that in some locations there could be a service that you can purchase from the government that is used to maintain the service and perhaps support other underfunded services like education. Locally we have a board that oversees the local cable service with internet. They offer the lowest price and fastest speeds in town. So basically, there is a tax (fee), for those who user the service that is self-sustaining. As others have said, and I agree, the pay as you go model makes sense here.
I would like, however, to have my wifi and home internet on one account with one fee. I would be nice if I could roam with my smart phone, with internet, then go to my home pc and get access to the same high speed access without have to paying two account. FYI where I live, I have DSL but not 4G.
