April 20, 2015 - NYTimes Editorial, “Look to the States on Broadband” - Faster Internet speeds are becoming a necessity, and governments are trying to push for improvements. http://nyti.ms/1Oxowiv  
           “In Connecticut, the Office of Consumer Counsel, which represents residents in utility rate cases, is working with cities like New Haven, West Hartford and Stamford to develop a project called CTGig. Officials say local governments will contract with a private business to build and operate a fiber-optic network. The private company will invest its own money and make a profit by allowing other businesses to use the network to sell Internet service to users.”
