Green Light service I'm not sure if it was mentioned, i only read half way down and didn't see it, but there is a lot of griping about taxes paying for these networks. I don't know about others, but When i looked into greenlight, they said there was no tax money used in building or maintaining the network. It is sustained solely by its customers and is turning a profit. It is just managed by the city.
I wonder if they could get around this bill by building the fiber network for towns as city property and leasing it out to other companies to resell service on. Granted it would still be giving the crappy ISPs a larger profit than the network builder. But at least the residents would have better internet. If they did it this way, perhaps the network owner could stipulate a cap on pricing. within reason. If done this way, seems like they could extend it outside city limits too and just allow others to resell to the ones outside of city limits if they decided to sell later, or got approval to sell services themselves (city).
