Community Broadband - wireless and wire/fiber - a grass roots approach

REALNEO just attracted our CIO Rob Hawkins (AKA Robataka) from Japan, where residents can get 100 M fiber connections to their homes for $40/month - that's more than 100X what we can get here... bottom line is our current "system" of a few telecom service providers is failing America and our community. Ameritech and the cable companies have no intention to improve things here any time soon, and this isn't OneCleveland's mission - we need new telecom provider strategies, thinking big, high-bandwidth, universal access, and forever. Who cares?
