Early Dividend From Telecommunications Deregulation?

Gov. Daniels will be joined by Lt. Governor Becky Skillman, AT&T Indiana President George Fleetwood and legislators for an announcement about telecommunications investment in rural communities on Thursday at 9:00 a.m. in the Governor's office. After the event, he will travel to a public library in Montezuma for a follow-up news conference at 11:00 a.m. according to the Governor's office. Is this an early dividend from the enactment of telecommunications deregulation? That sounds good George. Now, how about some much-needed competition here in Indianapolis for Brighthouse Communications? We're getting a little bit tired of paying for their high-cost cable TV and putting up with their poor service.

I'll believe it when I see it. I live 20 miles from downtown indy. No broadband options, none on the horizon. I had broadband when I had a noname telephone company and moved to an (at that time) ameritech exchange. 3 companies later and still nothing.

maybe if they would quit spending time and resources changing the names on the trucks, AmeriSB&T could actually upgrade physical plant.

I'll believe it when I see it, too. We're in Comcast's zone of operation near Broad Ripple. We can't get highspeed because we've been told by AT&T/SBC our block isn't wired for it. Comcast won't upgrade the lines or service for our block either.
