Re: Comcast is too big

They built the system with their own money.

However I'd totally be for municipal competition...

On the private property of others forcibly seized via utility easements.

I was actually referring to the whole walled garden concept though.

Sorry, but I don't want my cable node compromised by a bot flooding the network with spam. It's just not cool.

About the utility easements, maybe statewide franchising wasn't so great an idea, and munis need to kick the bad cablecos out if there's something better to be had.

I'm for municipal competition.
