Fort Collins, CO is moving ahead with a public broadband

A city internet network that embraces Net Neutrality, is fast, and is far less expensive than the corporate thievery talking place.

How can we all get this going on our respective cities?
To hell with the corporate ISP.

1. Won't the state -- or the feds -- just pass a law

outlawing this? I'm pretty sure other cities which have tried to do that have been squelched in their efforts.

3. The state won't do it

Or so I hope, even though we have some huge comm companies here.

The feds are the real danger.
