Pirate radio = drug dealing and municipal broadband is anti-competitive censorship

So if the FCC commissioner is so afraid of municipal networks restricting competition and restricting free speech, I expect him to propose new, reintroduced, or tweaked rules for requiring last-mile access providers to allow their competitors to use their infrastructure for a *reasonable* fee... I'm sure this will happen any day now.

Yeah, that's a familiar idea, and I seem to recall it was killed in the USA by the oligopolies more than decade ago. Completely coincidentally, the cost of Internet access is now so ridiculously high that municipal networks have become a good idea.
