What do you mean there isn't Broadband!

By: nobyter, 12:32 AM GMT on January 21, 2012

Okay, I now believe that the world is coming to an end. I just learned that the ONLY Internet service other than dialup or hughes-r-net is ending in 11 days. Hughes Net left a bad taste in my mouth and a hole in my wallet. I don't even fathom going to dialup. It would cost more money than I am paying now to get an extra line and pay for ISP service. So, "Walton's Mountain" (well, Rockfish, Va) is going backward in a technological timeline. The BPL (Broadband over Power Line) which was not the best (see some of my previous entries), but it was the ONLY way we had to a decent connection. What's next? Electrictity to Hand Cranks? We don't have cell phone service here either(that part I kinda like). I'm sure one of my neighbors shot that Verizon guy when he said "can you hear me now?" and that is why we are in the "not hot spot". If I'm not on Wunderground in the future, it's because my carrier pigeon got shot for dinner...
