    From this story:

    It's a long article and so far the discussion by readers is civil. and together with the article, explains various views.

    The original news release on the Golden Bear project was as follows:

    The plan was good. Basically the Big Two in California killed it - ATT and Comcast.

    You can read more about the effort in my area on the Broadband Alliance of Mendocino County website.

    In the meantime, one of the biggest and wealthiest players in super high speed internet based in California, Google. is busy wiring urban areas across the US where high speed service is already available and the profits are high. Gee, it's great to live in the State where Silicon Valley is located.

    It does look like the speed of the Internet is going to be a new dividing line for Americans unless the government steps in and set some type of requirement for companies that only want to connect hi-speed only to dense areas with if want the easy dense areas, you must also do the non-dense areas.
