The municipalities have not been satisfied with the roll out of broadband by the private sector.

The service is spotty and there is definite redlining against areas where providing the service isn't profitable enough.

Rather than step up to the plate and provide universal service ala the POTS network, the telcos would rather lobby for protectionism, in direct conflict with the intent of a municipality's goal of providing a service for the greater public good.

One more case for making corporate lobbying illegal and why libertarians are assholes.
