CT Gig Project wants to bring high-speed internet to all of the state.

An effort is underway to bring high-speed internet to residents across Connecticut and create competition for the existing cable and broadband companies. The CT Gig Project includes public officials who say it is needed for economic development, competition, and innovation. Opponents don't think the government should get involved in the internet business. 

At a time when the state's business climate is under scrutiny and the state budget is in crisis, what’s the best solution to expanding and improving internet connectivity in Connecticut?
