Re: Free land and electricity?

said by lemonade:

Wow, i didn't know Google get free land and electricity.
Oh well, no matter what I see Google as a lesser of evils

The two Kansas Cities knew what they were getting themselves into (and obligated to subsidize) just to get google fiber.. Think of it as a minor bidding war to win the opportunity and this is a small price to pay to put the telco & cableco on some major incumbent punishment. Hopefully in this "contract" if google pulls out, I hope the existing infrastructure would be able to be "bought" on the cheap by the cities and run it as full muni, as I doubt they would dismantle the infrastructure once "IN-PLACE"...

Let's see what happens in NOVEMBER first.. then you can almost predict the future..
