The Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR) a major player on the broadband scene nationally through is MuniNetworks division has published an extensive rebuttal to Steven Titch's latest in a long line of screeds attacking Lafayette and LUS Fiber.
MuniNetworks has produced a brutal line by line, point by point rebuttal of Titch's paper. It is really quite amazing & I recommend it highly: Correcting Community Fiber Fallacies: The Reality of Lafayette’s Gigabit Network
(If you'd like to amuse yourself you can walk through LafayetteProFiber's extensive coverage of Titch's shenanigans. I recommend starting at the bottom with the first post on Titch and reading toward the present; it makes quite a narrative.)
