Killing Wireless Freedom

"Broadband Reports says that 14 and possibly more states that have or will pass(ed) bills banning community-run broadband. Free Pass shows a map breakdown of the states while Tallahassee.com takes a look at a newly proposed bill in Florida, backed by Sprint, BellSouth, Verizon, and Comcast, designed to bog down the muni-development process."

The above is a repost from Slashdot.

God this bugs the heck out of me. In the town I used to live in they ran a municipal broadband system. It was efficient, cheap, and still turned a profit for the town. Then they "privatized" it. Rates when up, service went down, and everyone switched to Mindspring.
