Repeal!! In Nebraska

The Journal-Star in Lincoln, Nebraska discusses a study reporting to a state task force charged with finding a way to bring broadband to Nebraska.

The study's chief conclusion is that the best way to get broadband to more of Nebraska is to allow Nebraska's public electrical utilities and municipalities to get into the business. The study points out that the private providers have had more than a decade to provide competitive services and haven't done so and that prohibiting local competitors puts Nebrasksa at a disadvantage.

That involves getting rid of a law that unduely constrains public competion.


They get it in Nebraska.

No Comment. Your readers can do their own homework and draw their own conclusions.
