Baltimore City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young is looking to put net neutrality and municipal broadband on the agenda at City Hall.
On Monday, Young is expected to introduce a trio of resolutions surrounding internet-related issues. Each is aimed at ensuring internet access.
One of the measures calls for a study into the viability of a publicly-owned broadband network in Baltimore. Specifically, the study calls for the Department of Information and Technology, Department of Finance and Department of Transportation to explore a citywide program.
“Such a program could ensure high-speed Internet access to citizens at an affordable price,” Young’s office states. “San Francisco recently completed a successful municipal broadband study that explored various public-private financing options.”
