I played a spades game with a guy who lives in Utah. We were chatting and he told me that he was on a dial up connection, which makes the game go slow and some people fuss about that, but that he had no choice because where he lives he can’t get cable or DSL for internet. The rest of us were shocked. It was like, what? This is 2008 – in America! And no cable internet to your town? But it turns out that there are a lot of places where you cannot get cable or DSL.
If you live in areas not serviced by DSL or cable for internet access, you do have a source for a broadband connection. You can get satellite internet. Even in the melon capital of the world, Green River, Utah.
