But people want the same basic government to put together a broadband network and make that work?
So which is it, is the government competent enough to build a broadband network cheap enough for the people, or is it full of incompetent, corrupt people that want nothing for the citizens?
Can't be both ways.
And yes, I know it's city/county governments that want to build these community broadband networks. But you do know that these officials are the ones that end up being state reps and senators, right?
Not necessarily. I can name a score, or more, of local pols who never aspired to state office. As they say, "All politics is local".--
