Re: community broadband is communist

good one, but in this case a private business has already set up the enterprise....which later on is deemed vital and then the govt effectively destroys the private business and takes over the industry. sound familiar???!?!?!?

Sounds like the Rural Electrification Act.

The government stepped in and did what private industry would not because private industry cares more about their stock price than their customers.

If the REA never happened I bet midwestern farms would still be waiting for electricity.
