Forget net neutrality and the cable companies, THIS is how the internet stays free.
Its called the "East Central Vermont Community Fiber Network", and its a joint venture of 23 Vermont Towns (see map on Home page), seeking to build
and operate a municipally-owned universal, open access, fiberoptic telecommunications network, free from government and broadband companies.
Wishful thinking? Maybe, but its worth spreading the word and letting people know that other alternatives are trying to be implemented by communities
for a free and open internet, as opposed to just 'net neutrality vs broadband companies', and the dreaded 'Internet2.'
I recommend to the mods that this be moved to the Science and Technology Forum.
