Why Is Your Internet So Expensive?

Why is broadband in the US so slow and so expensive? Many have only the option of one provider or a couple where the price is held high. And why Americans don't have fast internet. Could it be the 15 top providers spending millions of dollars lobbying to maintain the status quo? Is the US the most expensive internet in the world, and why?

Yosef Getachew joins Thom Hartmann to talk about the internet and why your internet is s expensive. Yosef Getachew is the Media and Democracy Program Director at Common Cause.
