(2009-04-23) Time Warner Fighting Nc Muni Broadband

Time Warner Cable and Em Barq have been using Lobbying to fight the Municipal Net Green Light operation in Wilson Nc. North Carolina's State Senate have proposed bills to not only effectively crippling or banning the local service, but also to prevent such services from getting funds under the broadband portion of the national Economic Stimulus law. Hmm, they spent $28M, and have 3k customers after a year. That's $9k/customer.
