There's really not one thing you can blame, Robin. With projects like this, it's more about numbers. First, we have two providers of wired broadband already, and the market's a bit smaller than Nashville. Then there's the infrastructure. A lot of the older Louisville neighborhoods still have above ground electricity/communications, and you know those trees we all cherish? Combined they must be a maintenance nightmare for utility crews.
Also, it seems that it's not a done deal, and Nashville is being cautiously optimistic at best
“The announcement is great but Nashville is only being considered – we're not a shoo-in yet,” says Alex Curtis of the Creators’ Freedom Project. “Not only is existing infrastructure going to be a big consideration but so is support. Mainly from our municipal government, the tech community, and our citizens. This is going to be a tremendous effort to make this happen, and I'm very excited about the possibilities.”
