Tri-Cities Broadband

Tri-Cities Broadband

Since it looks like a slow day so far for breaking news on community broadband issues, I'll do a little catching up with links to sites that have already been out there a while and worth a visit.

The cities of St. Charles, Geneva and Batavia, Illinois have attempted to implement a 3-city FTTH (fiber to the home) network, but were defeated in a recent referendum, due in part to a massive marketing and misinformation campaign waged by the local cable TV and telephone companies. Backers of the FTTH initiative developed an extensive web site which has a lot of useful links and resources for anyone interested in bringing a community-based broadband system to their town.

If you haven't visited their web site yet, you should.
