Your assertion is simply untrue.
Once again, if a telco is unwilling to service a county or adequately, why should they (i.e. Americans) be prevented from installing and operating their own network???
Nobody is asking some twit from Santa Monica to fund anything. Rather, communities want the right deliver a service, when your beloved private sector has failed; as it does so frequently.
I just love how AT&T and South Carolina legislation defines broadband at 190 kb/s. Way to keep us in the 20th century along with blue laws.

said by Telco:Yes... any government from doing it. Any private interest can still do it. There is no law that prevents any private individual, organization or entity from setting up and operating a private broadband or cable provider.

That is, unless of course your beloved government decides to stop it.
