Brett Glass runs a Wireless ISP (WISP) in Laramie, Wyoming that spreads across some wide open spaces. To compete, he argues, he needs the government to regulate the right aspects and to keep its hands off everything else. (He believes Net Neutrality is unnecessary and will hurt the ability of small ISPs to compete.)
I interviewed him when he came to Berkman to give a talk. (My liveblogging of his talk is here.)
There are more such interviews at Broadband Strategy Week.
