That's actually starting to look like a good idea where I am, too.  Major problem is longer lines and less people.  Doubt we could find 4000 subscribers.

we had a computer engineer put a T5 line in at our Black Hills property, for his use with the DoD.

he left it to us. the thing is so fast, i can't even explain it.

but that's a rare blessing, in those parts.


take care of people, and gifts will rain from the sky.

Some people bring a knife to a gunfight and win.

Some people bring swim fins to the knife fight, watch the other idiots kill each other, then take their stuff and swim happily out of zombie range.

Right now I get faster internet in rural Wy for half the price of a slower connection in town. But Iím scheming to get up there more...

 Here on the Texas coast, I was using Spectrum until Harvey hit,.. they left us sitting here for a month to six weeks with no response from customer service as to a projected renewal of service. My land land has been with AT&T since the '70's so I bundled everything with AT&T dish, computer, TV and phone for $24.00 a month less than Spectrum's fee. There's change in the phone service but my computer is faster, my TV has a better picture and without the technical glitches that came with Spectrum "service." I was immediately a happy camper.

I can be just as angry at the jihadists for wanting to kill me, as they are angry with me for being an American.
