get mad, then MOVE! there are reasons people live where they do..
the resources they have (or don't) have acces to including competitive broadband are staying or leaving factors for some people (not all, as a given) so, if your mad.. MOVE! when enough people leave the municipality that will light a fire under the community to make it a priority.
if I can take the stereotype thing a bit further.. if your black and you don't want to live the bigotted south, you move north... if you dont' want to live in these places, you have a choice, even if it costs $5 a gallon to get somewhere, at least you still can.
