Actually that's a great point Rebeca, I forgot all about that. I can't even remember which city rolled out their own municipal fibre, but they got taken to court over it by the telecos.

The big companies would rather fight municipal fiber than deploy their own, its just absurd to be honest. Plenty of other articles out there besides this one: http://www.law.com/jsp/legaltechnolo...769174&rss=ltn

Of course, it could always be worse: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/8248056.stm
