I should also add that we have a wait-and-see approach to the "build it
for free" model will work. Cities get huge efficiency benefits from
these networks and they should not expect to get this for free. The best
networks are those that are being carefully designed with most of the
applications in mind from the start, not those just designing networks
for cheap public use.

Matt, I understand your frustration. Did you spend the time to try and
figure out what the cost would be for the Atlanta build out? Today most
Muni's want someone to build and maintain on the service provider's
dollar
which puts larger projects beyond most wisp budgets. Brad

Even if we did do a deal with the city that wouldn't stop a new player 
from entering the market. Again, without something of value provided by 
the city there is no reason to do the deal.
