Whats with the focus on universities? Why not other areas where people actually live in more permanent state?
Also when you say stimulus you mean the broadband stimulus from a few years ago? I thought the broadband stimulus money was supposed to be spent on connecting places that dont have broadband not place that do.
If its the middle mile thats understandable, but not all are. Plus improving the middle mile doesn't magically wire places that were not wired before. The broadband stimulus was created to wire unwired places not give wired places more wire.
reply to me1212 I went to the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in Chicago. It is located around 3300 South Michigan Ave. Surrounded by public housing projects and neighborhoods that had half of the lots vacant from neglected or arson buildings having been torn down. There are other colleges in similar situations. Traditional neighborhood and business revitalization programs would be greatly helped if you could add in the capabilities of gigabit symmetrical internet service. One way to do that is to expand the university or college internet capability into the surrounding area.
