Wow

After reading that I'm really impressed by the numbers and such...

I'm seriously thinking about presenting this to the city council where I live.

Once you do that you do realize Who ever your telco and cable companies are will come in and smear your campaign right.

Look at the fools near Chicago who got the campaign stopped and then got price increases. That was humorous and I still laugh when i think about it.

Great idea minidu See Profile], I was thinking of doing the same.

• 19 out of 38 (50.0%) businesses with broadband access* to the Internet experienced job growth. This number includes 24 organizations using the fibre network, 13 of which (54.2%) experienced job growth.

• 10 out of 37 (27.0%) businesses with dial-up access to the Internet experienced job growth.

• 1 out of 18 (5.6%) businesses with no Internet access experienced job growth.

* Due to difficulties with discrepancies between Internet Service Providers (ISPs) serving South Dundas, potential and actual download speeds, broadband access is defined in these findings as Cable, High Speed, Fibre Optic or Wireless connections to the Internet.

These findings suggest a correlation between job growth and the use of the Internet –
particularly with broadband access. In the following sections, these effects will be
examined further by controlling for the effect of industry sector and size of the
organization on job growth.

I wonder if similar studies were done during deployment of electricity or telephone service.

Hopefully they are ready to redeem themselves here and are willing to get this back on the ballots for Nov. 2004. If residents are fools enough to turn this project down twice....then no one can help them and they get what they deserve. Can't say we didn't try to warn them, and no one is laughing here now. Maybe the residents here might finally believe Comcast and SBC don't care about their taxes?! (Which was such a bogus argument to begin with....).
