So, you would prefer to leave these people with a ridiculous wireless replacement?
funny there are more than 600 people in my county that don't have access to broadband. No one is making a big deal about that. And they aren't even separated by water. So no I couldn't care less that 600 rich people don't have wired service to their summer homes.
It wont cost much to pass 600 homes with FiOS,
You do realize they live on an ISLAND?
In fact, since there are no alternatives, the adoption rate will be much higher than their other areas. So yea, itll pay for itself.
No other alternatives? Why not? Why does Verizon get forced to provide service? How come no other companies are being forced? Hardly fair. Other companies were allowed to assess the situation and decided there wasn't enough profit in it an decided not to provide service an apparently that is ok for them. if you have these rules then they need to be applies to ALL or NONE. Choose one I don't care which.
