I received a Speed Matters robocall

On Thursday a group called Speed Matters left a taped message on my answering machine. It sounded pretty political, but I did not make the connection right away. The call implied that Verizon and Comcast are engaged in a shady alliance (monopolistic deal?) that is preventing citizens of Baltimore from getting a good deal on their high speed internet.  I was told to visit http://www.speedmatters.org/baltimore. The site was not as specific as I would have liked it to be, but it did reveal that the Communications Workers of America (CWA) union is a big player in this group.

I was not going to write about this until I stumbled upon this Bill Cole Tweet today:

“Proud to stand with @prezjackyoung and CWA to ask, once again, “where is Baltimore FiOS?” The Verizon-Comcast deal isn’t good for Bmore.”

So there is your heads up on this expanding issue. Stay tuned.
