Better Faster Internet For Rural America

Rural America has been left in the dark when it comes to internet access, yes there is the option of satellite internet offered by Hughes Net and Exede etc. but it is strictly limited in various ways from data caps to internet speeds and etc. But when it comes to online gaming and live streaming and using video streaming services such as Netflix and YouTube you have to pay outrageous amounts to get the speed you need for them services and still they may not hold up to expectations due to lack of a steady connection to the internet because with satellite there are a range of signal interference's from cloudy weather to trees and etc. you simply can not have a steady reliable connection to the internet. Yes it may work for some people but for the people who use the internet a lot for work and play it just won't cut it so I would like one of the cable companies or the FCC to please figure out away to bring steady reliable internet services to the millions of Americans living in rural areas. Also the price of fast reliable internet in a city ranges from $80 to $120 depending on the provider and for unsteady unreliable satellite internet in rural America for the same speed and large data caps range from $150 to over $200 depending on the provider, this is outrageous and unacceptable especially for internet that isn't that reliable. So if you live in rural America or want to assist in this movement simply sign this petition and let them know we demand better faster more reliable internet services in these areas of the country.
