This episode of Gigabit Nation tackles a few big misconceptions about broadband that are holding communities back. One is that you can't sell services at an inexpensive rate. Another myth, which may have needlessly killed a project in Palo Alto, CA is that user-financed broadband networks fail. There are several user-financed success stories.

John Brown, President, CTO, Co-Founder at CityLink Fiber Holdings, Inc, lays bare these and other myths. How many times do we hear the people don't need 100 Mbps or a gig to the home? All government involvement with broadband is bad, all private sector involvement is good. Or is it?

Let's cut to the chase. Tune in and bring your questions with  you. It's time for another show to separate fact from fiction and hype from reality.
