What can be done?

We need deeper investment in both the internet for all and digital public infrastructure. With shelter-in-place continuing, millions of us are at home. Those of us lucky enough to be able to work from home full-time are doing so, while many children are struggling through Zoomschooling. It’s hard to argue now with the idea of the internet as a public utility when essential things such education and safe food ordering rely on it; without equal access, our society is becoming even more unequal.
