My broadband connection is good enough for me, so why should I care?
Many of your fellow residents have no effective and/or affordable internet option. Without adequate internet access, your neighbors and the town as a whole suffer: home values and economic development are depressed, educational opportunities are limited, and the town is unattractive to young families. Internet access is a modern utility, and lack of broadband is a serious hardship, similar to the lack of electricity or telephone of 100 years ago. So much of our lives (shopping, education, communications, entertainment, work, healthcare, and more) are rapidly evolving to utilize and even depend on broadband access that is readily available to most people in the industrialized world. Your support for broadband helps your neighbors who are not as fortunate as you, and supports the future vitality of the town as a whole.
