we did not even have cable internet here until last summer or maybe the summer before either way it was only 1-2 years ago before that it was dial up for all...every time I go into my local office to pay my bill someone is picking up a starter kit so I do not see how verizon can deem us unserviceable we have 13,000 people in our town and a majority of them leaped at cable internet the second we could
Sounds like the boonies in Canada. White River, Ontario (pop 1000 in the middle of nowhere), received cable (5Mbps/1Mbps) last year, and I can imagine that they have a high number of signups. The main thing that made it possible was that the local cable company (Shaw) has a fiber loop which runs cross country and happens to pass through town, and its only $37.95/month, without cable tv.
the CO for my town is right next door basically lol so I could get those awesome speeds if they would just upgrade the CO to do DSL I know quite a few people in my town alone who have dropped verizon all together and went for VoIP because well you know verizon can not force them to keep phone service with ANY high speed plan around here because you know they do not offer them
