The correct way of solving this was demonstrated in Stockholm
and duplicated in a handful of Canadian cities. In the first case,
the City of Stockholm "nationalized" the laying down of dark fibre
in the city, and formed an agency (http://www.stokab.se/english/) which
provides unlit/unrepeated/unamplified dark fibre between any pair
of addresses in Stockholm at cost as a public utility.
On the other hand, Palo Alto California demonstrates the folly of
relying on government to lay fiber optic pipes.
