Time Warner showed it wasn't afraid to flex some muscle at a recent public hearing in Wilson, NC concerning their planned deployment of a fiber optic network. Predictably, they pulled out the tired "taxpayer money" and "competing with private enterprise" lines like so many broken records. The city rightly demonstrated that the fiber system isn't even a comparable product since it's leaps and bounds beyond what the incumbent is offering. This is going to be one of the fiber battles to watch, just like the fight in Batavia, IL.
Nothing that I know of. If you know of something upcoming, drop me a line so I can get it posted.
