Google is no different than ATT, Verizon, Time Warner, etc.
They are no different period. All of those companies get massive tax breaks, land, money, etc. from the local and state governments. Only difference is Google is supplying the people with massive speeds, while the rest of those losers supply the people with the least amount possible.
TWC, ATT, VZ, Comcast, etc do not have the cities handling their legal fund either like Google requires. If that was the case cities would not have CableTV let alone states would not have approved state wide deals.
