Internet access was not an issue 30 yrs ago in the quiet farm community of Big Sandy Mush. Internet is now used for almost every conceivable need, and I'd be lost without it. As an organizer of various public events it is an essential tool, especially keeping in touch and answering folks questions in a timely fashion.
When everyone had dial up we didn't know the difference, but now we've got a high speed satellite dish. However It is expensive, goes down due to weather and other unknown reasons just when you really need it, is erratic, and can be an exercise in frustration. Since it is a satellite you are charged $100 for a service call when something breaks. I might add there is also no cell phone service. Peaceful here? yes, frustrating, emphatically yes!!!
