That is why rural people love you soooo much! 40 minute drive to get coverage that sucks, although that may reduced to 20 minutes now, it has been a while since I checked last.

If you are going offer broadband, then I may be interested, but frankly, when the power goes out, so does my internet, but the phone still works.

They just want to get rid of the old telephone lines and be able to strictly have landlines go over the broadband/IP-based lines instead. It makes sense as right now there is redundancy between the two and the old stuff is obsolete.

My guess is, we'd be paying even more for a still crappy network.
