Yesterday I was talking to folks in Dodge County about their broadband access. Dodge County (As you may recall from the County Profiles) is pretty well served with 99 percent coverage at speeds of 25/3 and 95 percent coverage at speeds of 100/20.
Unfortunately being in a well-served county doesn’t help much if you yourself are not well served – Linda Noble knows this! She is a farmer, parent, grandparent and active member of the community. She was kind enough to talk about what it’s like to not have good service.
After the video we spoke a bit about what life was like with dialup. She was reminiscing about what it was like to avoid dialing up once kids got home from school. She realized she was still doing some version of that now with her connectivity. As she said – she redesigned her life based on when I could get online.
Lack of access is a barrier to her!
