Re: follow Kansas and Missouri Agreed.....
Now Im all for the incumbents making there own decisions and servicing areas they deem fit, However when THEY FLAT OUT decide not to wire a neighborhood/township/city and BOLDLY to someones face say NO ( cough... ATT & Verizon) and then try to stop an individual and there community for taking the matters into there own hands Weather the area decides to fund it out of there pocket, there taxes, federal grants, loans, or putting themselves on the street corner for favors should not be the issue.
The issue is the Incumbents will NOT do it for you so you MUST do it yourself. Im sure most of us were brought up believing in the quote ..." If someone won't dig that hole for you you had better dig it yourself" well thats exactly what these situation are. We claim to be a country of equality well services should be included in that statement as well. Either serve us all EQUALLY or don't run crying to uncle sam that someones stepping into your territory simply because there willing to do what you would not. There should be a Federal law that slaps the incumbents upside the head whenever they run to local/state legislators to try and stop a city, town, neighborhood from deploying there own broadband (now this is if) the incumbent won't service it or in the way the community,township, neighborhood, city would.
