Who wants competition? Big cable tries outlawing municipal broadband in Kansas

Who wants competition? Big cable tries outlawing municipal broadband in Kansas | Business Transformation | Scoop.it
Lobbyist for Comcast, Cox, TWC wrote bill to stifle rivals like Google Fiber.
Karl Wabst's insight:

Digital transformation requires more competition not less. Competition provides incentive for increased coverage, speed and lower costs.

 

If this bill is successful, expect similar measures around the country.

 

The US has some of the slowest speeds and highest bill rates of industrialized countries.
