Everyone wants rural broadband.
Education wants it so our schools are competitive.
Big ag companies want it so they can access your data.
Medicine wants it so they can do live-casting and do remote operations.
Farmers want it so they can listen to Willie and Waylon.
But nobody wants to pay for it.
Is broadband a utility like highways and should be a public cost?
Or is it more like a toll road?
Why should city folk pay for farmers to play on-line first person shooter games?
