Re: Idiot Local Governments
said by Skippy25:So what are you whining about? Verizon is simply meeting its building conditions.
And they are only going to continue to expand in markets that the local government put requirements on them to do so. Funny how that works huh? They don't go to one city because that place wants conditions met and yet they are now stuck meeting conditions put on them by others. Which is exactly the way it should be.
said by Skippy25:Good thing you're not in charge, we'd not have FIOS anywhere. You saw what happened when local governments made unreasonable demands of Verizon and got slapped down and yet, you insist on a heavy-handed approach. You saw the failure of this approach You need to learn to accept reality that this approach does not work.
Personally, I dont think they should have been allowed to expand any part of their network unless they committed 100% to replacing every copper line with fiber within that city. If they didnt do that, the city should start a muni project.
Verizon is doing every local government that has jurisdiction over FIOS' service area a favor, and it is time the local governments recognized this.

Re: Idiot Local Governments Nailed it.
What these Republicans fail to accept is that terms corporation, CEO, profit, profitable, boards, executives, conglomerates, Big Business, etc etc etc are not mentioned once in our Constitution. Had they foreseen where our nation has headed, they would have indeed enacted a Separation of Corporation and state; aka as corporate fascism.
This lack of definition is precisely why the Republican arm of the SCOTUS overstepped their authority and now classify anyone of these multibillion dollar Goliath entities the same as every Tom, Dick, and Harry.
