Regarding the Jan. 29 Point of View “ Google deal not in public interest”: Dawson Gage’s piece about Google Fiber was deeply flawed. No public infrastructure is being “handed over” to Google.
In actuality, Google will buy or build its infrastructure like any other provider. Gage also alleges Google was “deeply involved in the illegal, secret surveillance” when in fact much evidence exists to the contrary.
Furthermore, how Gage can suggest that broadband hasn’t enriched our lives is bizarre and puzzling.
