NC municipal broadband bill back on the agenda for today

Stop the Cap has an excellent overview of the bill – which the public has not been allowed to see or comment on – that is being introduced in a NC legislative committee today. Please contact your representative and let them know you oppose any ban or moratorium on municipally-owned broadband networks.

Note that the bill is officially opposed by a large number of NC citizens as well as Google, Intel, Alcatel-Lucent, the Fiber to the Home Council (FTTC), American Public Power Association (APPA), Atlantic Engineering, Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), and the United Telecom Council (UTC). The bill also directly contradicts the Federally-approved and currently in effect National Broadband plan.
