We Need Broadband

We’ve had our share of companies trying to cover our area with Wimax or other wireless services, none seem to have come through on more than a small-scale.

One company, Ridgeviewtel (who also have some deployments here in Jefferson County), has set up a petition/info form to map the location of those who don’t have access to broadband.

It’s an idea that I have been playing around with, but only for the local area. I thought that perhaps it would be of interest to local companies if the stimulus package can be used.

The link is – here and the FAQ is here.

Unfortunately (and probably for privacy reasons) there is no public access to the locations, and it seems more geared toward info for their company. But the more power to them if they can bring broadband to those in Jefferson County without it.

So click the link above and sign the petition if you’re in a rural area (anywhere in the US, not just here).

I am a web developer and fitness geek, but I have a heck of a lot of differing interests.  Biking, the Internet, technology, movies, fitness, running and walking and hiking, science fiction, photography, graphics, WordPress, flying and aircrafts, pets and animals, history, and much more.  I like to stay very fit but I don’t mind sitting at my computer for work and play either.  I live in upstate New York (that’s far from New York City) in a rural area, yet close to a small city, with my beautiful awesome wife, a bunch of beloved cats and dogs and chickens in a very old multi-century house.
