waste of money and I'm not tied to any corp that offers broadband. If these people wanted faster and cheaper prices, then yes, they should pay for it and form a co-op. How do you think areas got things back when. They didn't want for the gov't to do it for them and ask/demand regulation; they actually stood on their own two feet and did it themselves. And this day many of those areas are far better off in terms of communications than NYC or other metro areas.
