    That's what an A/C unit is for. For some reason, I was the only one smart enough to buy one in my family. Everybody except for my brother and I suffer during the summer because they're too stubborn to buy one

    It wasn't my choice. I love Colorado, and I'll probably end up back there one day. My mom wanted to move back to New England when I was five

    New Hampshire is kind of stuck back in the 90's. The only companies which have really pushed new technology here is AT&T and Verizon. They're the only ones working on new infrastructure in New Hampshire. Our power lines are still above ground so they get knocked out during bad weather. Our internet operates off of a cable DSL network which was built years ago.

    South ga is worse! We don't have dsl, farming in the only industry, the power company in this area sucks! The power lines are of course above ground, and the power goes off every single week! (It actually just went off last night for about two hours just because a moderate thunder storm came through) verizon is the only cellular company with reliable service down here. AT&T is getting better. they bought altel out, who had decent-spotty service down here. Nobody has unlimited internet. The few that have internet either have extremely over priced satellite, or have over priced data(never more than 10GB per month) from verizon. It's really sad!

    WOW! I shouldn't be complaining then. How can you live there? I would move out ASAP if I was in that situation. I can't live without an unlimited internet connection (I'm not joking)

    I would beam it in through a satellite connection. Screw the cost at that point! That's just insane!

    The satellite companies are the biggest cooperate hogs out there! We had huges net for awhile, and it was $70/mo for 20GBs, and the service was very crappy!

    I would definitely recommend doing that. That's no way to live in a modern society

    I would create a petition to fund a fiber optic network. You NEED Google Fiber to help you out! Seriously, hit up Google on twitter. Those are the things they love to help with

    Att is going to get back with us by next Friday on whether they can get dsl out to us. If they can, it will be $34 for 6mpbs dsl. If they can't, we'll be forced to get limited verizon data-that cost an arm and a leg!

    Hopefully AT&T can help you out. They really are a company that cares about their customers

    google fiber isn't in some of the largest metro areas... Why would they come to a very sparsely populated area?

    Because of your network infrastructure. That's all the more reason to build a network there first. Google is an amazing company, and they understand issues like this. If you can get enough people to sign a petition and let them know what's going on, there's a good chance that they'll help you. It's happened before

    I hope so too! They are in the process of laying a cable that is for sure dsl, but I'm not sure if it will be done any time soon. But according to them, they have dsl in our community, and might be able to stretch a line to our house. The only problem is, none of our friends that live in the same community have dsl... So I don't think the costumer service rep knew what they were talking about.

    It wouldn't be done before that att dsl cable is... And while fiber would be nicer than dsl, I'm prolly the only person in 20 miles that could tell the difference lol

    I would think that they would build a connection to your house and general area. A paying customer who will stick with your company is much better than no customer. The cost is worth the reward

    That's true. It's a long shot, but it would be so cool if Google helped you out
