(00:00) Why are publicly-owned internet providers 25 times faster and less expensive than privately-owned internet providers? And who is ALEC and why are they introducing legislation in multiple states to make it illegal for communities to offer cheaper and faster internet? Why does the government restrict competition for corporate telecom companies? Why aren’t states prosecuting cable and internet franchises for broken promises? Who are the telecom giants that are part of ALEC? It’s another frightening story about the consolidation of corporate media and the governments that make it happen.
