Comcast has a lot to lose if municipal broadband takes off
Comcast revenue could take a big hit in two cities that might build networks.

By Jon Brodkin

Comcast could lose a significant amount of revenue in cities that
build their own municipal broadband networks, a new analysis suggests.

Comcast and trade groups that Comcast belongs to made some well-placed
political donations as elections next week in Seattle, Washington, and
Fort Collins, Colorado, could determine whether the cities pursue
municipal broadband projects. With that in mind, the Institute for
Local Self-Reliance's Community Broadband Networks Initiative analyzed
how much revenue Comcast stands to lose if both cities build their own
broadband networks.
