Lobbyist for Comcast, Cox, TWC wrote bill to stifle rivals like Google Fiber.
Legislation introduced in the Kansas state legislature by a lobby for cable companies would make it almost impossible for cities and towns to offer broadband services to residents and would perhaps even outlaw public-private partnerships like the one that brought Google Fiber to Kansas City.
Kevin’s Note: It’s time to dump my Comcast service I think.
Update: Cable lobby will “tweak” bill banning municipal broadband in Kansas
Kevin’s Note: Apparently, there was such an outrage/backlash from the people of Kansas that the group lobbying for this egregious bill of outright greed has already started backpedaling – within hours.
