Yesterday, the State Senate passed a bill regarding telecom deregulation (HB 2763), which essentially changes our "carrier of last resort" law so that telecom companies, i.e. Verizon, can now
provide "wireless" service, instead of "wireline," to new customers.
The bill is founded on the common-sense presumption that wireless is increasingly cheaper and more accessible for users, and therefore there's less (if any) need to keep putting up telephone poles.
Ah, but that's only part of the story.
