Just because you live in a rural area doesn't mean you have to live with slow Internet service.
Actually, in a lot of cases, it does.
Not by design… it's just that providing broadband service in rural areas just doesn't add up financially for would-be providers.
So it takes some goosing from public coffers to get broadband to remote areas.
Like the recent state grant for the North Bay/North Coast Broadband Consortium, which includes Mendocino County. We hear about the plans and their execution.
