Just as Wilson, NC has been ramping up to build their own municipal broadband network, the state House has passed a bill from committee severely restricting their ability to enter the market. Unsurprisingly, Time Warner Cable is the chief backer of the bill. It should also come as no surprise that a talking head from a think tank (in this case, John Hood from the John Locke Foundation) is using partial quotes and half-truths to back up the opposition. It's very hard to make a solid case when you can be caught lying out in the open.
Nothing that I know of. If you know of something upcoming, drop me a line so I can get it posted.
