The municipalities make the whole process even more annoying than the incumbent issues. Annoying and expensive permit issues, potential conflicts with local unions, hostile residents, etc. It's not uncommon to deal with bribery and corruption too. Getting fiber laid anywhere is a fucking nightmare, when I worked at UUNet we would basically spec out a project then multiply our final figure by three to account for municipality bullshit and other problems.

And what about the many cases where the Telcos/Cablecos aren't picking up the slack and actually suing municipalities who want to build and maintain their own infrastructure because they have no other option. No, the big COs are the real problem.

You obviously don't work for a municipality. Your ignorance shows that.
