Re: Where Telcos won't upgrade; municipal BB ok

said by FFH:

These towns are the prime examples of the abuse of power by the telcos who won't provide service claiming it is not profitable. But at the same time will spend more money fighting municipal broadband efforts than it would have cost them to wire up the town in the 1st place.

It all comes down to the telcos protecting their defacto monopoly power to the detriment of their own customers.

Bud. These towns are tiny. The problem is the area is not a money maker. I and a couple other design engineers tried to do studies about this exact area. Running even a wi fi company here is just to expensive. The area is almost all forest area. A few farms sprinkled in. Even a muni here would not pay off in 25 years.

Stay where they are and deal with the problems themselves by spending their money to do it.

Never assume anything.
