Bullshit. I live in the middle of Louisiana and I can tell you we don't even have digital fucking cable yet. I live 1 mile from a fucking horse racing casino that has fiber internet and 100000 digital cable channels. Best internet I can get is 3.0Mb DSL and the standard cable is worse than old analog rabbit ears.
THE LAST TIME THIS HAPPENED MY CABLE COMPANY WAS AWARDED A 1 MILLION DOLLAR GRANT TO EXTEND INTERNET SERVICE TO RURAL AREAS. I STILL HAVE NO CABLE INTERNET OR DIGITAL CABLE THAT WAS 2009! THEY"RE ALL FUCKING LIARS!
