Seattle mayor Mike McGinn has cast doubt over the citys plans to offer its own gigabit internet service. McGinn was a driving force behind the scheme, which is still officially scheduled to roll out to twelve Seattle neighborhoods by March 2014, but, in an interview with the Seattle-based tech publication GeekWire, now claims the service is delayed and casts doubts on its viability. The comments come as McGinn prepares to hand over office to Seattle mayor-elect Ed Murray, who recently won the local election. Speaking with GeekWire, McGinn questions whether the concept of bringing a private company in to set up the network is solid, noting that hes very concerned its not going to work. According to McGinn, Gigabit Squared, the private company in charge of the installation, has failed to raise the funds to build the network. The outgoing mayor says if a private company cant handle the installation, Seattle should raise money for a public service from tax dollars.
