Re: Truth

Which municipal FTTH project failed?

Actually, the legislation was proposed by the large Telcos in various states, to completely prevent any county or city from installing their own FTTH. That decision should be left up to the voters of a community, not Republican legislators and their corporate cronies.

Of course, there is nothing stopping private investors from using their own money, or raising money, to fund such a venture.

Which part of they do not want to service these areas do you fail to grasp? Moreover, am I surprised with you stance? No. Republicans hate government yet have no problem whatsoever using it to push a corporate agenda.

Here are a few. And why do you conclude that any government-funded project has a guaranteed success?

I couldn't care less who proposed it. In the end the taxpayers win because their money isn't wasted on something that isn't vital.

Ok I am typing this really slow so that you understand. My suggestion was for *private* entities and persons to raise their own money to build their network. You do realize this doesn't have to mean a cable or telephone company, right?
