Camino Coop: Make room for community broadband

Submitted by acohill on Wed, 02/09/2011 - 10:35

The Camino Fiber Network Cooperative, located in a rural part of California, has filed an excellent brief with the California PUC. It does a superb job of providing short, concise answers to a whole range of questions regarding state and Federal utility policy and its effects on local and regional community broadband efforts. This should be distributed and read widely by any locality or community group that is engaged in developing community-owned broadband infrastructure. For convenience, I have also attached a copy to this article.
