Andy:

A good place for that "smart company" to start serving the geographically disadvantaged is here in Vermont. On Saturday the legislature passed the "e-state" bill which, among other things, authorizes $40 million in revenue bonding to build middle mile facilities like towers and fiber.

The State is not going to become a last-mile ISP but it is going to help level the playing field for those who want to serve its rural areas. The goal is 100% broadband access (usable bb, not satellite or the FCC definition)to every building and everywhere outside by 2010.

I posted more about this at http://blog.tomevslin.com/2007/05/flash_vermont_l.html
