Both Annie Collins (of Tri-Cities fame) and saschameinrath.com (Sascha is doing great things with community mesh networking in my old haunt of Champaign-Urbana) recommend signing on to this national petition supporting municipal broadband.
Lafayette Pro Fiber asks you to do so as well. Check out the petition; it reads very nicely as an essay in support of the general idea of municipal telecom and hits many of the right high notes concerning the value of universal broadband access.
Lafayette knows just how obstructionist the incumbents and their allies can be. We are far from the only ones who face this battle and mutual support will help us all in the fight. Sign On!
