I live on highway 209 between Waynesville and Hot Springs right on the county line. I zoomed your service map in on my location and it is not correct. Maybe it is only in demo mode now and not fully updated for accuracy? The map says there is a wired broadband connection across the street from me. Not. Verizon once told me the same thing looking at their own map a couple years ago and I laughed at them. Now AT+T owns the phone line and because the line is damaged they have to come up once or twice a year to fix it when the static gets out of hand. I always ask the linemen, when are you going to run a new phone line up here? When are you going to run high speed internet up here. They just say it's not going to happen.
When they won't even bother to replace a damaged buried phone line, I feel confident high speed internet will never be run up here unless they are forced to do it.
So I have Hughes satellite internet. It is adequate, but forget watching any kind of video and you have to be careful with large downloads so you don't go over your daily allowance. The speed is moody to say the least. I get adequate service for $90 a month. Such a deal.
