Big Tech shoud be taxed. End of. The fuckers pay almost nothing.

There are plenty of far more deserving uses for that extra tax revenue than the boardroom/executive pay at the likes of BT and Vodafone.

It's total bollocks to make Big Tech "pay for their share infrastructure expenses". They already pay for their own infrastructure, just like how telcos and ISPs pay for theirs. By your logic(?), telcos and ISPs should be made to pay their share of Big Tech's datacentres, cloud stuff, production costs of streaming content and so on. And so should the manufacturers of smartphones, cable/DSL boxes and everything else that's connected to the interwebs.
