Stephens City, Virginia
Were a small town just outside of Winchester, Va. We have a local paper. We did have a local TV channel, but they cut the local funding, and the cable company wouldn't produce it or fund it. And we have no competition for cable in the area. We have Comcast, other that satellite (but they don't count) and that's it. If you want a broadband Internet connection here, plus TV, you are held hostage by Comcast. DSL is spotty here, if you can get the speed, and then there is dial-up. Yes Comcast rates are approved by the SCC of Va., but if there is no competition, the SCC has nothing else to base it on because there is no one else. Can you say MONOPOLY? Because that's what they have here. My wallet feels like it's been raped every month. But if I want HD TV and a broadband Internet connection, I haven't got a choice, at my house. AFFORDABLE INTERNET AND NET NEUTRALITY NOW!!!!!
