Re: Sad state of broadband. I wanted to add one more thing, I've actually pushed our cable company to survey the area to consider adding their (much faster) internet to the area. The result? Phone companies own the poles, and want about 8 grand PER POLE to drop a cable line on the pole (they say the poles need to be replaced to add additional lines). There are roughly 50-100 poles in that roughly 'mile' of area, resulting in close to a half a million of up front costs...basically assuming 100% of businesses switch, you are looking at a 26 month return on investment minimum. You'll never have 100% marketshare, so realistically you are looking at at least a 5 year ROI. No wonder we can't get faster speeds...
