"Even though the total cost of broadband
expansion is a tiny fraction of a single
year's transportation budget, broadband
seems to be the one kind of common in-
frastructure subjected to a rigorous re-
quirement that it 'pay for itself' almost
immediately.  Vermont has taken an
arm's-length attitude toward broadband
expansion by relying on hope and the
goodwill of Comcast and the bankrupt
Fairpoint. The state has discouraged
grass-roots citizen plans for municipal
fiber networks in our rural counties"
