The Chattanooga Gig network is in the news a lot in recent days; their struggle with Monopoly Telecoms mentioned in an earlier post.
This article delves more deeply into the “Gig” itself, also from Guardian. Then there’s a few additional links below, including one to their site. It’s always very valuable to have an actual model up and running of what one would like to see elsewhere. Or in this case perhaps, everywhere.
Gary and I can only ponder what if CLC had taken the broadband challenge as we advocated in years past…the projections Gary presented to the CLC Council and Mayor, of what municipal broadband would do for the local economy, seem at least partially born out in what has happened in Chattanooga.
Is it too late to get on the GIG bandwagon locally? Perhaps not?
