City to study alternatives to Comcast in broadband strategy [Links]

Shoddy local broadband is due to "regulatory capture and monopoly pricing—enabled by policies that the cable, phone and other broadband providers have engineered via lobbyists, campaign cash, and graft."

Fed Up with Comcast, Baltimore City to Study Alternatives [Baltimore City Paper]: “The game is played thusly: If your relative cannot be placed on the city’s payroll, then a contractor is found who will find a place for him or her. The contractor will be reliant on city work or—as in the case of Midred Boyer’s UTech in the middle of the last decade—will be reliant on Comcast.”
New Details Show Broader NSA Surveillance Reach [Wall Street Journal]: “The system has the capacity to reach roughly 75% of all U.S. Internet traffic in the hunt for foreign intelligence, including a wide array of communications by foreigners and Americans.” [The NSA released a statement saying it does not have “unfettered access” to 75 percent of U.S. web traffic.]
TowsonGlobal incubator turns focus to edtech [Baltimore Business Journal]: “That’s because education technology is a natural fit for Towson University, a school that is known for its teacher education programs, [interim director Frank Bonsal III] said. The university already has other education innovation initiatives that can work with TowsonGlobal.”
