can we start a not-for-profit, community run ISP?

is that something you can do?


@lizardsquid the rules might vary state by state. IIRC, here in North Carolina there's a law forbidding towns to have their own ISPs, because "unfair competition". 🙄 But I suppose that doesn’t preclude people making their own networks without benefit of local government. Not a lawyer, etc, etc.
