Bernie Sanders: $150 Billion To Make Internet Public

Democratic presidential candidate Sen.

Bernie Sanders recently announced a $150 billion, four-point plan that would fundamentally transform how the internet works in the United States.

The plan would effectively turn the internet into a publicly-provided utility, similar to how water and power are distributed.

The broadest goal of the proposal is to provide every American with access to affordable high-speed internet.
