I agree technology is good, and being in a city where TWC and ATT control all internet access, I support competition. I do however feel it should be fair amongst all...
Along with free power and office space...
Among the sweeteners granted Google by both cities are free office space and free power for Google's equipment, according to the agreement on file with the cities.
The company also gets the use of all the cities' "assets and infrastructure"—including fiber, buildings, land and computer tools, for no charge. Both cities are even providing Google a team of government employees "dedicated to the project."
I think the others are right to ask for a level playing field.
