So the stimulus will provide broadband Internet service for rural areas? How about broadband service for Kansas City, Kan., especially east of I-635?
You know all of the ads for special deals on DSL and broadband service? Don’t count on them in all parts of KCK. When I call my own phone company, AT&T, and other companies to take advantage of the offers, I am told the service is not available in my area. I am stuck with one of two cable providers who, not surprisingly, offer similarly priced packages. The rates from the cable companies are higher here than in other parts of KCK.
I sent an e-mail to my commissioner, Nathan Barnes, along with a copy to Mayor Joe Reardon to ask them why our choices are so limited. I have not received a response.
Kansas City, Kan.
