Good news for those who care about access to better broadband in NC. After months of wrangling, neither of the bills that were designed to protect broadband monopolies passed. One is still in committee, but it wasn’t completed or signed into law.
This is really encouraging. Wilson continues to add new Greenlight members daily and we’ll keep pushing forward. Thank you for your help, because the social media world really went to bat for us on this one.
That said, the cable company pushed one failed bill in 2007 and two this year. They haven’t made any of them law yet, but I have no doubt they’ll keep trying. HB 1252 may be studied during the winter.
The lawmakers return in May.
