Internet compromise proves a ‘stupid’ move
The decision last week by the Los Altos Hills City Council to give big money to Comcast to expand obsolescent internet services is arguably the stupidest move they have made in over a decade (“LAH council, residents reach cost-sharing internet agreement,” Aug. 24).
I have since checked to see if Sonic.net is offering internet in the residential area that was deprived of internet by an earlier stupid decision of the staff and council and find that it is not yet available. However, I bet that it will be before cable service will appear there and will be much less expensive. In any case, we should be aiming at prompt conversion to fiber-optical services and getting rid of cable.
