Hickenlooper seeks universal access to cable

An article in Florida's Palm Beach Post quoted Denver's Mayor John Hickenlooper regarding telecommunications access for the masses. The excerpt below is from "Phone cable plan touted as boon, feared as bias":
In Colorado, Qwest Communications lost its fight in the legislature to get one statewide permit to sell cable, in large part because it wouldn't agree to build its fiber-optic cable everywhere.

"It's going to be as important as the telephone," Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper said. "Would we let a telephone company not build out to certain parts of the city?"
