Google Fires Back At AT&T Over Fiber Lawsuit in Louisville


Google Google Fiber broadband in more markets across the United States is making a serious push to increase Internet service. Cities like Atlanta and San Francisco have already received treatment fiber (somewhat), and the company is looking to make it even more potential target markets as the year goes on. An image of the target those cities, Kentucky passed a law that would make it easier for Google to extend their city. Ordinance, the Louisville Metro Council named "Make up for One Touch", mainly the ability to Utility Poles attachments to enhance their Google Fiber service throughout the city (organized by other providers of broadband). Those "other" providers of broadband, AT & one of T, was not happy with the ordinance, and demonstrated as much by filing a lawsuit aimed at blocking it.
AT & T, it boils down to the root of the lawsuit: the status of the decision, only the regulators (particularly, Kentucky Public Service Commission) can not replace the local government can make decisions in Poland Utility attachments. Basically, AT & T Louisville city government insists that there is no option to allow Google to pole attachments without AT & T's express consent and participation. AT & T was quick to point out that the lawsuit is not aimed at Google, but the city government's "illegal" actions.
Whether or not AT & T is picking a fight with Google, certainly picking a fight with the Mountain View company. Google has expressed disappointment with a fiber blog post, AT appreciation for the passage of the Ordinance of the City of Louisville & T's recent actions. Company law has generally describes how a new broadband service that alleviates many of the logistical difficulties of implementation. He also said the benefits of the Fiber Service will provide residents speak up, and fight the case vigorously in saying that even in the way that the mayor of Louisville.

Despite Google's protestations, the case is ultimately likely to conflict, the judicial process the court will decide whether it is by this means. If nothing else, the case probably on hold the deployment of fiber in Louisville, is for at least some time. AT & T's legal case is certainly a matter of debate, representing a growing frustration among the traditional telecom companies with their aggressive actions Google's fiber expansion. Comcast, one of the largest cable and Internet provider in the US, has already responded to the extension service in Atlanta. With this latest challenge to AT & T, Google faces increasing opposition from competitors as they try to bring their services to more markets.
