Not that I agree with you 100%, but I've seen people move here and
assume broadband was available to them.
When they find out they can't have it they all say "I make my living on
the net and I need it bad"
I always wonder what they were thinking.
Anyways, government funding is fine if done right and by right I mean in
a fair non wasteful way.

or for Joe User to get your service.
If people want services, they should live in a city. If they want to live
in rural areas, they should do so with the understanding that services
(water, sewer, EMS, schools, cable, high-speed Internet, just about anything
and everything) are harder to come by and sometimes more expensive. No one
makes people live in the country. People choose to on their own, and they
should take responsibility for the costs and/or lack of services associated
with that decision.
Just my own 2 cents.
