Comcast sues Metro

The debate over the One Touch Make Ready ordinance has moved from the Council to the courts, and I am moving from advocating about it to analysis of the lawsuits. Here’s an update I wrote a few weeks ago.

Today, Comcast filed suit against Metro. It looks like they are raising basically the same issues that AT&T has raised.

Nashville deserves to have faster, better broadband service. That is what’s best for our economy, our schools, and our families. Unfortunately, this litigation may slow down transitioning our digital infrastructure to high speed fiber and future wireless technologies. I hope for a quick end to these lawsuits.
