Seems to me, Google doesn't have to invest MUCH of anything into KC's infrastructure, if that is true (which I doubt that AT&T, TW, and WSJ would like about what's in a public document/contract). Google gets a TON of "free stuff" that is already in place, including fiber.
Again, I guess I have a different viewpoint as to he term "investing" and "using existing".
I don't understand your position. Google is offering a better service for cheaper while creating new and using existing infrastructure. If you understand anything about fiber, there is a lot that they need to invest in (as most of the infrastructure right now is probally node to node, not node to end). Fiber is very expensive, the only reason google would be getting the "perks" is because they would be investing millions (if not close to a billion) of dollars into the local economy (jobs, materials, ect).
Why are you getting so emotional about this?
I would consider ATT and TW to be the ones with the "stacked deck" at the poker table, not google. They are entrenched, and I wish google would come here to knock out our entrenched monopoly (charter).Edited by Nocturin - 10/2/12 at 1:06pm
