Gigabit project in Seattle reportedly dead, leaves trail of unpaid bills

http://j.mp/1iUwOWd  (Ars Technica)

   "The Gigabit Squared project to bring fiber Internet to Seattle is
    reportedly dead, with the company having failed to pay more than
    $50,000 to the city.  Newly sworn in Mayor Ed Murray "has declared the
    city's deal with startup broadband company Gigabit Squared dead,"
    according to a Puget Sound Business Journal article yesterday. "Murray
    confirmed that the deal with Gigabit Squared had fallen through."
    Murray received a donation from Comcast, which could lose customers to
    a fiber network, but told Ars before the mayoral election that he
    would not change the city's gigabit plan. In fact, the problems with
    the Gigabit Squared plan started before Murray was sworn in on January 1."
