And so just where we lived, we’re like right on the edge of where they’re coming, but they haven’t come to us yet. And so cable companies really need to get on board with including people out there. Because there’s a need, there’s a need for it, and we’ll pay for it. They just haven’t made it access to us.”

“I don’t know. We live in Apple Valley, I guess that’s not terribly rural but we have no problem with Spectrum. I have a friend who lives further East and she does have a problem with it and I don’t know what the answer is.”

Donna Campbell, Apple Valley
