Action speaks louder then words, deploy - deploy. The summer season is short. We are all grateful for the service, now just get it done. Use the time and money used for a meeting to make some part of the installation better. We all know it is coming.

For those who didn't attend the meeting, here is a short summery.

They are not starting until next year.
The signal will come over on the microwave towers.
The fiber optic line will run in the main road, Mary's Lake to the West End.
If you front on that main road, fiber will run to a box on your house.
If your not on the main road, it will connect into the phone lines nearby.
They have 2.6 million dollars committed to do the job.
