Oh this is not about rural broadband. Municipal broadband is putting a light WiFi signal into a dense population. That's rather cheap. But in your case Griff it would be spending million$ at a time to run circuits up hills in order to get signal to a few hundred homes at a time. Your local municipality can't even afford the rights of way.

AT&T has actively fought broadband access in mostly rural Northern California for years.
They are among the least consumer friendly companies in the US.
I proudly ended 50 years of their phone service a year or so ago.
And am now being debt-collected for $125 they say was unpaid at the end of that long period of crappy service. My checkbook is not out.

I reckon, but I had to go back and look.

I'm no chicken, though. Turkey, maybe.

We got some kind of rural broadband thing. They locate the little dish-type antennae on water towers. You can see a water tower from almost anywhere hereabouts.
