Re: Where are the details?
The other issue, which is not explicitly spelled out in this bill, but would apply, is that during the petition process to designate an unserviced area, any telco/provider that does provide service to the area can block petition against deployment..
While normally that would be fine, the definition of an area serviced by the likes of ATT/TW/$telco_provider, is if there is 1 location within that area that has service from the previously stated providers, then they service the entire area, even though they may only cover 10% of a particular area and have no plans to expand.
That means that a community cannot deploy a broadband solution in that area, even though 90% of the residents do not receive service of any type, or sub standard service that the provider will nto upgrade.
Bah, that was a typo, I meant to say that they could petition to block the deployment, not actually block it.
