Re: Boston is Verizon Strong
Fortunately Verizon, unlike CenturyLink, AT&T, Comcast and Time Warner Cable, has softened its lobbying when it comes to banning public/private partnerships and municipal broadband. Granted that's in part because Northeast states aren't buying the lobbying argument that state protectionist laws are a good idea...

Re: Boston is Verizon Strong
Putting the "wireless gear to city lights and utility poles for improved mobile service" should be interesting to watch how that develops and if Verizon does ease it's stance on cooperation while taking in some presumed benefits from the government.

Re: Boston is Verizon Strong
I'll be interested to read that. I get the sense that perhaps Verizon also didn't want Boston going the route of any one of these public/private partnerships we're seeing flourishing with companies like Google and Ting. Neglect a city long enough and it begins to look for alternative solutions, which is what triggered the municipal broadband movement in the States.

Re: Boston is Verizon Strong
Interesting to hear the local perspective. We have a writer working on a piece about the flurry of announcements between cities and telecommunications service providers so I'm looking forward to reading what he discovers. Obviously they're all looking to boost marktet share and loyalty, as well as test some IoT implementations -- and the ongoing revenue streams these solutions engender. I agree with you; there must be some attractive incentives but CSPs also invest heavily in these solutions, so it's certainly not one-sided. From what I've read, CSPs must request XYZ in order to invest these hundreds of millions of dollars. Without those promises of access to data, perhaps, and a certain set of income, maybe, then the $XXX million investment just isn't worth it -- especially when so many other urban areas would gladly partner with these CSPs.

Re: Boston is Verizon Strong
I was VERY surprised to see the Verizon Boston announcement. Especially after the company just last fall got done pretty clearly telling locals it wasn't happening. I have to think Boston put some very tasty incentives on the table to get this deal done, given Verizon's very clear disdain about seriously expanding its fixed-line broadband footprint.

Boston is Verizon Strong
Interesting to read the Verizon-Boston news, especially as I see so many releases these days from cities around the country inking deals with various service providers. Those of us in many of the burbs outside major metro areas, meanwhile, appear to be cable company country-- at least for now.
