Re: Change the state laws to allow public utility fiber builds.
Yes, Google pointed that out recently as one reason why they went with Kansas City, Kansas. Very little of that excessive pole guarding behavior. I think that was one thing Kansas City, Missouri changed after they found out they had lost. They significantly reduced the pole guarding restrictions, access fees, paperwork, etc. The Google Gigabit build could nudge other cities and power companies to change their behavior in this area.
