Its expensive to provide service to little hick towns. Trust me I know. It does suck, but not much you can do about it. Were getting LTE in many rural areas this year from Verizon, so i can get 15-50 Mbit/s down and I have unlimited hotspot so when I am at my lake house I will have unlimited broadband, otherwise its a still expensive $50 for 5GB or $80 for 10. Cheaper than cable.

If you want wired broadband, move to SK, or the UK where they are supposedly getting 90% DSL availability.
