FCC Demands States Get Out of the Way of Municipal Broadband

The FCC must have been listening last week when news stories abounded on the situations that exist in many major cities concerning broadband carrier restrictions. This week FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler went on a mission in support of municipalities rights to compete with cable companies in the broadband market.

If the people, acting through their elected local governments, want to pursue competitive community broadband, they shouldn't be stopped by state laws promoted by cable and telephone companies that don't want that competition.
