I have no idea how they determine it.... but it's no where near accurate. Some of these counties are very large. I know Windstream has deployed DSL into rural areas in many of them, with extreme line lengths and very slow DSL (due to distance) there's still most of the county without DSL. It's a cost of choosing to live in the boonies..... Yet then this map shows the whole county as dark blue and the key says "96-100% of homes have access to broadband. Ha, RIGHT. No way! They better not be counting satellite or something into the map. There's counties here that have spotty cell coverage and it's still listed as 96% penetration for broadband. It's not adding up.
I'd like to see someone explain where they get this from. -- "Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power." -- Benito Mussolini
