Lots of people wasting a lot of time on a pipe dream that will never happen in Asheville.

Comment by Bruce

Bruce, I appreciate the comment and wanted you to know that a lot of us – supporters of Asheville’s push – recognize how difficult the challenge may be.

Two observations: First, when something is hard to do, it is not also disqualified from being worth doing. Second, our community has already built an open fiber network, it operates now, it is one of the only examples of its kind in the country, and it was built without Google’s support. It’s called ERC Broadband. Imagine what we could do with Google’s help.
