    Missouri Revised Statutes § 392.410(7)

    Missouri state law allows municipalities to offer broadband services to residents, but they cannot offer telephone or TV as well. It also bars municipal governments from leasing broadband infrastructure to other communications providers. Municipalities may offer broadband service for use in internal government services, educational and emergency and healthcare scenarios, but are only able to offer “Internet-type services” to residents. All told, this has historically made the economic prospect of operating a network prohibitively costly in the state. This legislation has caused untold damage to the residents. Clearly passed to prop up a communication monopoly who has red lined underprivileged neighborhoods and profited greatly as a private company operating a public monopoly.
