Just like roads. Have the local/state gov'ts provide the infrastructure and allow open access to any company that wants to provide services over it.

Despite naysayers who believe gov't can't do anything right (which certainly has some roots in truth), it would solve SO many issues and actually allow for true innovation and customer choice/service.

Isnt that communism if you dont let big corps exploit thier positions, hold back the entire country to the stone age, so they can make even more billions?

There was a major need for the interstate system around WWII, there is NOT a major need for a national fiber optic network built by the government.. The current internet network works fine.

I understand the pessimism about a federally-built/managed system, but how about state-based systems? Just as bad? A little, or maybe a lot, better?

Does it? I guess it depends who you talk to...
I have FIOS here. Cool. I also have DSL and Cable options. Cooler. DSL, however, is on borrowed time. Cable isn't much of an option when it's the only other option. Why not have a state-based infrastructure with open access? What would specifically be bad about that? I can think of an awful lot of good things...
