Sometimes reform comes in very strange ways. The Battle Royale between the City of Philadelphia and Verizon over who will provide citywide wireless Internet-access plans couldn’t be more confusing. Free-market types have got to root for publicly traded Verizon over any local, politicized branch of government, right? Cmon, isn’t this City Hall were talking abouta building wrapped in red tape (as if by Christo)! Their track record teaching our kids, hauling our garbage and running the buses does not portend success. Surely theyre not first choice for megabit broadband.
