Re: No Broadband Available
@jeffeory - correct, that Loudoun county. Home to many large datacenters and to the old MCI/UUNET Internet hub. I live just outside a town limit, in a fairly well populated development. Just no broadband service of any kind.
@NWOhio - 2 things wrong with your statement: 1-Satellite is NOT broadband; 2- right of way restrictions DO exist. Under the county agreement, only Verizon and Comcast can run cables on the right-of way (poles, highways,easements, etc.) A new provider would have no way to cable.

Looks like the issue with OpenBand has caused your area to not have any competition. Otherwise you'd likely have FiOS, Comcast, & or Cox there... With all the tech around, it's really a "dark comedy" happening there...
