The project runs out every month? The idea is to get Utopia running independently without any tax payer money, which is why they don't have a large store of cash (in reference to the standard saying they will be out of cash by the end of September). As to Municpal networks being good or bad, I would say Utopia is about the only Municpal network I do like actually. You choose your provider and, if you don't like fiber for some reason, you can choose cable(still). Nothing stopping the current incumbents from joining Utopia. It's an intense roll-out of networks. Like the internet. Because normal business isn't fast enough for the change that the internet creates.
