Score one for the people!

Thank god at least one state legislature gets it, saving the taxpayers of NC from the grubby paws of local politicians and their lazy neighbors.

It's like those lazy canadians with government healthcare and one of them getting $400,000 open heart surgery back in 1994 for FREE! and it costing each family in canada about $0.05 so that one person could live. The travesty of that pesky government!

not even anywhere near comparing the two. the FTTH network by a city/gov't has a HUGE failure rate.

That's just straight up and complete BS. We get it, you're in the industry or love the industry or maybe just love all the easy cash the industry makes by getting special laws passed that specifically benefit their private interests and nobody else.

A monopoly is easy to spot unless you are blinded by the stacks of cash.

Muni networks do have a HUGE failure rate. Should we site some of the largest now?

iProvo
Utopia
Mananas Virgina.
Clyde, Ohio (BPL and the State of Ohio stopped them from deploying FTTH to protect the citizens)
Wireless Philly (and not because Elink backed out of the deal)
and countless other Wifi Networks and BPL
Also look at Click! Network in WA. That network is still operating on DOCSIS 1.1 the same as 95% of all MSOs. You don't call that a failed network?
And I do not work for the industry- used to work in it about 5 years ago; now i work for a multi-billion dollar toy company that is based in Denmark.

Yes lots of examples where laws passed in favor of incumbents causes muni operations to have problems. Whodathunk.

Oh and I hardly call something that still exists as being a failure but I get how you like to point out the negatives to justify your position. Just because you're only willing to see the bad aspects doesn't mean every similar occurrence gets the same rubber stamp because you have your corporate goggles on.

That's a large pile of BS. I guess you haven't heard of Powell, WY then.

»Fiber to the Home on the Range
»Powell, Wyoming: Population 5,500, Fiber Fed

Care to explain that one? I'm sure there's several more that are quite successful.
