Has anyone given much thought to the quiet but energized frenzy over the rural gap to have access to high-speed internet? My original thought on this was ...they chose to live in rural, inaccessible,deep woods homes with mile long dirt driveways and no neighbors. Because it cost several thousand dollars per mile to run the main cable line, they cannot afford it. Now the various proponents of eliminating the so-called internet-gap are pushing Congress to tax us all so the farmers, hermits and rural folk can have fast internet. I don't see that as my problem. These folks are enjoying the benefits of being in the sparsely populated countryside but expect me to pay for the inconveniences they have. They can get dish cable or phone company cable (DSL) but, that is just too slow for them.
What am I missing here?
