The public is going to be mercilessly taxed to provide themselves with high-speed internet, and the cost will be entirely on the people who benefit!
This failed in Chattanooga, in North Carolina, and everywhere else it has been tried!
I can guarantee it will not fail in Leverett, MA
83% of the town voted yes for the tax increase to build the network
75% of the town signed up for service before the network was built
82% of the town is signed up now as the network is in its final stages of construction
The network has tremendous support from the residents. The ISP is a local company that has been providing ISP services in the area for 20+ years
$75/month for 1gbps is a great price IMHO
$95/month for 1gbps & unlimited phone service is a great price
The remaining towns should be so lucky to follow in Leveretts footsteps.
