Apparently multiple days of a Trump camapgin shakeup is more interesting thatn a clear quid pro quo by the Clinton Foundation….

Maybe some decent reporting on that is needed…

Aetna is being painted as the bad guy here, but remember, they bailed on ObamaCare because the costs were killing them and then the government refused to let them merge to mitigate those costs.

More government control, please.

Google Fiber in trouble?

Google Fiber is reportedly rethinking its high-speed internet business, but that hasn’t changed its plan to bring gigabit-speed internet to Huntsville starting next year, city officials say.

The Wall Street Journal reported this week that Google Fiber’s rollout of gigabit service in other cities “proved more expensive and time consuming than anticipated” and the company has suspended gigabit speed projects in San Jose, Calif., and Portland, Ore.

The Journal said Google Fiber is also experimenting with wireless technology rather than fiber cable to connect homes to its system and is stepping up efforts to lease fiber cable from municipal networks. It says the company is coming to Huntsville because the city is building a fiber network.

In a related report, Computerworld saw the wireless move as a positive step to keep Google Fiber competitive in a rapidly changing market.

Google Fiber announced in February that it would bring gigabit internet service to Huntsville starting in 2017 using fiber cable capacity leased from Huntsville Utilities. The company and the utility have signed detailed agreements on sharing fiber.

The utility says it is building a fiber cable network to operate its own power grid more efficiently, reliably and safely and is adding excess fiber capacity to lease to Google or other companies.

“Construction of our fiber network for our own use is underway and on schedule – everything is on track,” utilities spokesman Joe Gehdres said Monday. “Any specific questions regarding Google’s plans would have to be addressed by Google. We still have a great relationship with them and expect our project to move forward.”

“Our Gig City initiative with Google Fiber and Huntsville Utilities is on track,” Mayor Tommy Battle said Wednesday. “Our agreements are in place, we have a financially viable model, and we look forward to providing our residents with greater access and affordable opportunities for high speed broadband.

So… no?
