Re: Where are the details?
Bull, you provide a bunch of points that makes a municipality have to charge at a rate that is equal to or greater than what a nationally subsidized internet provider charges.
Lets talk internet on the good old data phone, I can get a blazing EDGE speed for the low monthly price that someone else gets LTE from the same company. My overpaying for slow service using equipment that has hundreds of spare parts from upgraded services in other parts of the country helps to pay for someone else getting LTE. I don't have any say in level of service I get, I either have it or not so I choose not to.
If I vote my government in, and that government wants to provide me a service, GREAT! I don't care if this one little tiny splinter of market for some multi-billion dollar company cries about it. I don't care if people point out that using power utility money for broadband is unfair because if that's the case then the huge industrial buildings having power probably isn't fair either if they get electricity and not have to pay big huge sums of money up front for the full price of all the electrical equipment needed to serve their huge power load that is normally subsidized.
It's a list of stupid arguments that incites anger in people that are on the fence. "Look, they're taking money out of electricity users pockets to pay for people to watch cat videos!" It's a bunch of crap that satisfies the purpose of crippling any true competition (not business school economics competition) and comes from companies and individuals who never speak the truth about that fact.
Say no to JAMS!
