I call B.S. If the taxpayers decide to spend money on building their own network because the telco/cable companies ain't doing the job, that's up to them. These companies just don't want the competition.

And 1.5mbps is pathetic.
That's 1.5Mbps or above.

Incumbent broadband providers are pushing legislation that would restrict Georgia towns from building municipal broadband networks. Under the proposal, if a single home in a census tract has Internet access at speeds of 1.5Mbps or above, the town would be prohibited from offering broadband service to anyone in that tract.
