More than half of municipal broadband projects are unprofitable,
University of Pennsylvania study says.

Eleven out of 20 municipal broadband networks closely observed in a
University of Pennsylvania Law School study are cash-flow negative.

The report, generated by U of Penn law professor Christopher Yoo and
co-authored by student Timothy Pfenninger, found that of the nine
municipal broadband projects that are making any money, the cash flow
is so small that it would take more than a century to recover project
costs.
