Who wants competition? Big cable tries outlawing municipal broadband in Kansas

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.
