Slow Walk to Protest Slow Internet

On October 26th Upgrade Seattle joined comedian Brett Hamil and a group of fed up Seattle residents who were tired of paying high fees for substandard, slow internet service.

The group marched very, very, very slowly to protest very, very, very slow speeds. Of course it had to be raining.

We culminated the march at City Hall where we awarded our first ever "Municipal Broadband Champion" awards to Councilmembers Rob Johnson and Kshama Sawant, who just two days earlier put forward a budget amendment to to create a shovel-ready municipal broadband plan.

Thanks to Elliot Stoller for coming to the March and capturing everything on video.
