Small Idaho Town Builds It’s Own Fiber Network

This small town in Idaho gets it! Broadband is another utility just like power, water, and sewer. They are building a fiber network just like they financed the water and sewer systems. Build it and charge the users. Sewer and water connections come with an upfront fee and a monthly fee for using it has been that way for over a 100 years. Why have more cities and town not concluded that broadband is a similar part of the required infrastructure, water sewer, and power? Lack of inspired leadership. We have risk-adverse administrators and political leaders that would instead let someone else do it, and it never gets done.
