Not sure how Qwest can say that unless they're actually providing the ISP service as well.  Interesting.

Well, I've pretty much made up my mind.  It's time to move on.  Had a city official tell me in writing, they will not support community wireless initiatives, unless there are franchise fees involved.  I was also told by a city official that Qwest will not permit Meraki units to be used for shared Internet access from one house to another in Charles City.  That means our mayor has committed to providing a second-rate education to our kids while on his watch, because he objects to affordable "last mile solutions" for our kids.

So, anyone know a community that has "unwired" in Iowa?
