Comcast et al definitely have the resources (ie, sitting on billions in cash) to build out their networks into lesser populated areas, but don't (probably because expenditure wouldn't generate much revenue), so broadband in rural US is still a problem. Which in 2017 is ridiculous. :-(

Maybe FB or Google will get their drone networks up and running soon....

Internet is up and running. All is well in my world again. The tech was a really nice young guy who did a good job here on what turned out to be a project for him taking four hours altogether. He had to run a new line to me from the pole.

Now, with a whole terabyte of data per month I can come here and just write up all kinds of interesting stuff for you guys to read while you should be working!

Working?  Great Scott man, I'm not only retired, I'm a cat.  Anyway in my own aloof way, I'm grudgingly happy everything worked out for you.  Tuna.

You need to decide between 2-3 competing products again. Those writeups are a hell of a hoot.

When there's a multiplayer version, I'm going to be on Frost's team. Well, except he doesn't seem to actually need a team...I mean, what's the point? "Hey look, it's Frost and His Merry Gang of Useless Hangers-On!" Or something.
