Seattle is Ready for Better Broadband
It's time to make the Internet a city-owned and operated public utility, just like water and electricity.
Whether you're living in Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley, Capitol Hill or Northgate, you deserve equitable access to fast and affordable Internet. Did you know that 15% of Seattle residents lack home internet?
We can roll out affordable gigabit broadband to everyone in Seattle by making it a public utility. A report commissioned by the City of Seattle shows that we can have public gigabit broadband for $45/month after the initial build out. Plus Seattle Broadband will respect net neutrality and your privacy, unlike the big cable companies.
Other cities have already created their own municipal broadband networks, like Chattanooga, Tennessee. It's time for the City of Seattle to do the same.
