Craig has compiled a superlative overview of muni-broadband efforts in the US. This is definitely the Muni-BB 101 for any government or civic development individual or group looking to bring their communities into the 21st century. I would have liked to see more on various pricing approaches, discussion and importance of equal access, and analysis on costs, but maybe those topics are for another book. Nonetheless a must have resource guide and primer for muni-BB.
