Indiana telecom's goal: "No house left behind"

Here's an article about an Indiana telecom that wants to bring service to all parts of the state. It's refreshing to see entrepreneurial boldness and a can-do attitude for a change compared to the bureaucratic, no can do culture that permeates the big telcos and cable companies. I hope it spreads to California.
“Our policy is ‘No House Left Behind,'” Weddell joked Thursday morning at a meeting of the Communications-Technology Committee of Vision In Progress.

Weddell said Cue Connex wants to set up networks to service all of a community's technology needs: high-speed Internet service, Voice-Over-Internet Protocol (VoIP), videoconferencing, Internet-based television, and eventually video services over a wireless network, as well as many other services.

“We're talking about huge (fiber-optic) pipes coming in,” Weddell said, describing the scale of services the company plans for Indiana. Cue Connex is in the process of purchasing a fiber optic company, he said, but cannot release the company's name until the deal is completed.
