ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's view on broadband communications systems and cable television. As he says, "In a number of locales, local governments have already demonstrated their ability to provide such services affordably where commercial providers are not now meeting the need. Further, what seems to be less understood and certainly not acknowledged by the provider community. is that in a number of cases, local governments are partnering with commercial entities to bring broadband services to the community. One of the things governments and governmental authorities have always been adept at is providing infrastructure. Whether it's roads, sidewalks, bridges. water and sewer lines or community buildings, nationwide citizens rely on their local governments to provide the basic community infrastructure where they live and work. This can also be true in the provision of wireless broadband services."
