Municipal Net On The Way For Nashville?

According to today's Nashville City Paper, At-Large Council member David Briley is going to introduce a Council resolution on September 20 to create a task force to look into the feasibility of developing a municipal high-speed network. I support that resolution.

This news along with recent word that Google might be working toward building a free nationwide Wi-Fi network is promising, especially for those of us who think we pay Comcast and other private providers too much money for mediocre service. At least these prospects might get the small number of corporate providers in gear to try and make themselves better businesses, rather than sitting back and complacently limiting our choices to either speed or price.
