Re: Farmers "need" broadband?

How many need or use broadband, I think, depends upon what area of the US they farm in, and how far they live from an ISP. Some crop farmers subscribe to a GPS system; I'm not sure how the information is delivered to them. I know farmers who have microwave links, dialup internet, and some with no internet. I have not met any with hi-speed yet. But. The odds are they won't know anything about the internet except they have it and the wife or kids use it. We talk about crops, weather, and local farm news. I don't know any farmer who would even need or want even a half-T1, let alone one who could actually buy it. Where I live the fastest ISP business class is a cable delivered 15/4 @$200/mo. 10/2 is about $130/tax.
