Re: No Free Speech on Free Wi-Fi
This will play out in the courts. Government entities have considerably less leeway in filtering content than a private ISP would have.
This will probably prove to be a weapon for the "bad guys" in two respects:
First, those opposing muni WiFi will use the ensuing court battles as a reason for cities not to deploy muni WiFi.
Second, those opposing net neutrality will say that they type of "moral" filtering being done here would not be allowable if a net neutrality provision were in place, so we shouldn't have net neutrality.
Both arguments are seriously flawed, but will be used against the forces of reason anyway.
VoIP--the death knell of remaining voice monopolies!
