Telecom Companies issue lawsuits for municipalities

Several Telecommunication companies in USA started filing charges for municipalities that build their own high speed data networks based on fiber optics or DSL lines, and offer telephony and cable TV to distant communities.

In this way, telecom companies manage to stop the progress of these networks until the lawsuit case is finalized in court. Therefore they manage to gain time and money.

To support their case, telecom companies claim that as municipalities are able to easily borrow low interest money for such investments, they cause unfair competition in the industry.
