I'm extremely happy to see an article like this. It is incumbent upon the state and the telcos to stop resting on their laurels and provide an information infrastructure that can keep North Carolina a viable place to do business. Allowing Time Warner and AT&T to dictate whether or not a municipality can build its own broadband network (Wilson, NC's Greenlight comes to mind) is counter productive. A lot of people like to complain that public entities are inferior to the private sector, but it seems clear to me that Greenlight is a case in which the opposite is true. They did such a good job, in fact, that Time Warner et al had to sweep in with legislation designed to prevent it from happening anywhere else in the state. It's time to stop thinking about short-term profits and start thinking about the future of business in the state.
