Good. About damned time. 
Municipal broadband networks could expand because of FCC's controversial vote.

We'd been having a recurring drain problem in our laundry room and previous service companies had (obviously) not fixed it. We ended up having Greg over last week, not only did he completely take care of the problem, he ran his camera through our drainage system all the way out to the city sewer, to show us that the problem had been solved. Worth every penny!
