Washington: "Firms say Grant PUD broke law"

"Basin Internet service providers want some heads to roll at the Grant County PUD. They say the utility violated antitrust laws and broke state law that prohibits the PUD from providing retail Internet, telecommunications and cable services over its fiber-optic lines."

"By subsidizing Benton Rural Electric Association so it could create a subsidiary to provide Internet service to Grant County, Grant PUD forced out four other area businesses, said Craig Jungers, owner of Network Essentials, based in Moses Lake. He said he plans to sue both agencies for price fixing."


So far, I'm about halfway through the Grant County PUD's outside investigator's lengthy report on his investigation of alleged illegal behavior at Grant County Public Utility District.
