Hey, John Blust, why do you want to kill Greensboro's chances to land the Google fiber network?
Our state senator is a co-sponsor of the bill that would place onerous restrictions on municipal broadband services, and possibly scratch North Carolina from Google's list. Opponents describe it as a job-and-innovation killer, too.
Raleigh's city council has passed a resolution opposing the legislation. Zach Matheny says he'll ask the GSO council to do the same tomorrow night.
Irony points to the N&R for hiding its front-pager about the issue in the Google-proof vault.
Alert reader RP, noting that the National Broadband Plan says a reasonable target for local service is 4 megabits/sec for downloads and 1 megabit/sec for uploads, says:
My TW broadband is having node problems nightly that lower download speeds to 1mg. Uverse says deployment in my 27401 (Fisher Park) address is over 12 months.
Why is TW sitting on DOCSIS 3.0 deployment that could boost speeds ten fold?
