We support the expansion of high-speed Internet services in rural communities across the United States, including our own community of Hart Flat, California. Federal funding is available to improve broadband capabilities in rural areas. Satellite and wireless Internet is expensive and has limitations (lag and limits on monthly bandwidth). We want to send a message to AT&T that while DSL is more profitable in urban centers, the company has an obligation to treat rural communities fairly and not as second class citizens when it comes to technological improvements such as DSL.

Carin Enovijas, United States4 years ago Comments: I don't live in Hart Flat, I live in Keene, which is about 5 miles past Hart Flat. I'm just about a mile from a Tehachapi address that gets AT&T. That line has to travel past my property to get there. In fact, there's one of those ugly white and orange markers for the FI-OPT line on my property easement. So why can't I get At&T to jog a line down to my house about 100 yards away?
