Star-Telegram: Cities say Wi-Fi is necessity

The effort to outlaw muni networks failed in Texas, but that doesn't mean it's over. The issue is alive in Washington, where the Federal government is considering a rewrite of national telecom laws.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports on the national effort to outlaw community Internet, even though it's happening in more and more Texas towns.

Is high-speed Internet access a basic utility that everybody should have access to, like water?

The question was thoroughly debated at a Senate hearing Tuesday in Washington, D.C.

Ask the question to officials from a growing number of North Texas cities, and their answer: yes.
