Last Mile Plan still missing! I still haven't seen Google's Plan for The Last Mile. You guys seem to think that dropping Fiber from the closes Pole is a Plan. I think Google is not going forward in Kansas City because they want to clean things up, not add to the mess. Fiber is the Future, and that means Clean and Out of Site. Going underground is more costly, and that is the problem. The solution, Communities and Cities have to Fiber Wire themselves. Then Google or the ISP's could just meet them at the HeadIn.
I am astounded how shills for the cable and telco duopoly can make their ($$$Paid$$$) excuses for these plutocrat lamebrains.
UNDERGROUND? Both sewer and water are undeground EVERYWHERE! Guaranteed! Fiber in the same place will not send water or (yuck!) pouring out your connection. They did it in France and other places without any problem.
These telco/cable clowns can make endless excuses, but they cannot execute! To make it simple: they are greedy, stupid morons who cannot and will not make it happen, while their monopoly loads them with profits and bonuses, without COMPETITION! To them "investment" means greasing up local politicians!
