North Carolina State Rep. Marilyn Avila (R-Wake County) has introduced a new bill to fight pioneering municipal broadband efforts. Mainly supported by the state's large incumbent service providers -- AT&T, CenturyLink and Time Warner Cable -- the new bill is the fourth effort in recent years to put a ban on community fiber-based network efforts. Similar efforts, however, by North Carolina's Senate Finance Committee have not been able to stop municipal broadband service networks from going live in Salisbury.
