C'town ascendant

It was close, but Charlestown's City Council voted to approve Mayor Mike Hall's proposal for a public-private venture that will bring high-speed wireless Internet connections to all of Charlestown and possibly to surrounding areas. The city will issue $750,00 in bonded indebtedness over the next five years.

Read Greg Gapsis's coverage in the Evening News in this story:

Broadband measure gets OK on first reading

Big news, but still hanging over other municipalities (and perhaps Charlestown) is the looming threat of House Bill 1148, which would effectively stop cities and counties from creating universal access to high-speed Internet.

You know the drill. Call your legislators.
