| Written by Christopher | No Comments | Updated on Aug 5, 2014 The content that follows was originally published on the Institute for Local Self-Reliance website at https://ilsr.org/understanding-the-wilson-and-chattanooga-fcc-petitions-community-broadband-bits-podcast-110/

Given the exciting development of the FCC opening comment on petitions from Wilson, NC and Chattanooga, TN to restore local authority to their states, Lisa and I decided to take over this week’s podcast of Community Broadband Bits.

We talk about the petitions, some background, and interview Will Aycock from Wilson’s Greenlight Gigabit Network and Danna Bailey from Chattanooga’s EPB Fiber network.

We finish with some instructions on how you can comment on the record. The Coalition for Local Internet Choice also has commenting instructions and some sample comments.

We want your feedback and suggestions for the show – please e-mail us or leave a comment below. Also, feel free to suggest other guests, topics, or questions you want us to address.

This show is 22 minutes long and can be played below on this page or via iTunes or via the tool of your choice using this feed.
