Michigan municipal utility expands broadband offering to neighboring towns

Michigan municipal utility expands broadband offering to neighboring towns

Article in the Battle Creek Enquirer:

"The Coldwater Board of Public Utilities has signed an agreement with the village of Tekonsha and is in the process of formalizing an agreement in the village of Union City, to put wireless Internet equipment on the villages' water towers, said Linden Cox, the organization's operations manager. Neither village has access to high-speed Internet service and there are no plans in the foreseeable future to install a fiber-optic system."

The Coldwater Board of Public Utilities already supplies both towns with electric service.

This project faces opposition from a group calling itself 'Concerned Citizens for Responsible Government Spending'. (This must be a small group since the newspaper reports Charter Communications employees make up 70 percent of the group's membership. Charter, by the way, reportedly does not offer high speed Internet in these towns.)
