Meanwhile, these local governments have been just as awful as stewards for their residents when it comes to private broadband. You know, the kind that actually works. You know, the competitors to government broadband.
Local governments out of any wired company that comes asking to provide service – making it nearly impossible for them to do so. Which has resulted in many areas suffering a dearth of hardline options.
Government is (yet again) the problem. The answer to government – isn’t more government. Unfortunately, no one has told this to Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Tom Wheeler.
Decrying this government-created lack of options, Wheeler has declared he will issue another Obama Administration fiat – steamrolling the laws of the twenty states and ramping up federal government spending on local government broadband.
Does the federal government have the authority to do this? Of course not.
And why not start with the thirty states that don’t have these laws – you know, be a little less dictatorial about it?
We answer all of this – and much more – in the video.
You’ll find the answers…disquieting.
