There's no doubt that blind and deaf people, who use special online services to communicate, need access to zippy Internet. Similarly, smartphone-based medical devices that are popular with disabled people require fast Internet service. Telecom industry lobbyists have argued that, without a fast lane, disabled Americans could get stuck with subpar service as Internet traffic increases.
So are they offering to upgrade these special online services to the "fast lane" for free? Cause I'm going to hazard a guess that these 'special' services that target such a small vulnerable population probably don't have lots of extra funds around to pay for fast lanes. So in all likelihood when they can't afford to pay the ISPs their ransom they'll be stuck on the slow-lane.
Does Verizon do anything to help this group of people (that isn't part of a government paid program)?
