    133 cities have their own broadband

    133 US cities now have their own broadband networks

    I wonder how this will affect Net Neutrality since it's government controlled. But, "Private companies have long objected that government-owned networks represent unfair competition" which makes feel better that it'll tame their greed.

    Sucks that my state (TX) doesn't allow this. Hopefully this changes, but in one city in North Carolina it's $150/month!

    Anyone here take advantage of this and is it better or worse?

    There's a lot of argument over whether to classify broadband providers and major service providers (PayPal, etc.) as "common carriers."
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion
