While critics charge that municipalities "crowd out" private investment, the reality in Florida shows that where municipalities invest in broadband, there are more private providers of broadband services. Municipalities frequently sell broadband services to private communications firms, and the result is a more competitive and symbiotic environment that benefits both consumers and the private sector.

This is a screenshot:
We are excited to have the ability to hide / show layers as it will enable us to continue adding new varieties of community networks to the map without making to too cluttered.
