Resident one block off KY 551 still living with dialup

About: Knifley resident cant get broadband at home on KY 551

Upon reading Mr. Beard''s letter about services that he cannot get from windstream, I can relate to the problem also.

I talked with people at Windstream and was told the same story. I live on Casey Creek Road, about one block off of Hwy. 551. Mind you, 1 block off of Hwy 551. The company will not supply service to my house. I still have the slowest of slow service, meaning dialup. How sad is that? In the year 2010?I thought I would buy an IPad, wireless sounded good to me. I was told that even AT+T which services IPad, was not avaliable to me because of my location, but down the road on 551 heading toward Columbia about 6 miles it was available.

It seems to me that in this technical world that we live in we should not have this problem. Hopefully someone at one of these corporations will take our problem, think about our situation and resolve it for us.Cordially,
Bev Robb
