Re: So basically....
said by baineschile:Not true. Our electric and cable TV rates up here are less than those in the more populated areas in NJ.
said by Eat MeThe same was said many years ago of electricity, telephone and mail delivery.
And to this day, its more expensive for the electric company, telephone, and mail delivery are more costly in rural areas than densely populated ones.
The electric company is a cooperative, and the cable TV company is a family owned company. Both of those don't have to worry about Wall Street, which is why the rates can be less.
When your utilities are owned by Wall Street or big Government, that is when areas suddenly become "unprofitable."
