Small towns & High Speed Internet
Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit reports on an email from Frank Martin:
The lesson to all small towns across America in regards to the internet is as clear as it was to small towns in the last century in regards to trains and highways, if you want people to come to your town, you need to have high speed internet. If you have it, you are part of the world, if not, your days are numbered.Pittsburg, Texas is a small town - fewer than 5000 in the city, about 12,000 in the county. We have high speed internet available through CountryNet (radio), DSL (SBC) and Cable (Cox). So if you're a telecommuter looking for small town life, be sure and check Pittsburg & Camp County.
