According to the Aug. 12 newspaper, the general manager of Frontier Communications announced they made broadband services available for several areas, including Belleville. This made me very excited because in order to bring it to Belleville, you have to go past my road.
The general manager encouraged readers to call the 1-800 number to check for eligibility, so I did and was told what I have been told for the last six years: "not at this time." When I start complaining they tell me the same thing: "Well, we are expanding the areas that we service, so your area may be one of them." After six years, when it will be our area?
I live on Pine Run Road in Washington. This is about a quarter of a mile on state Route 68. In order to get to Belleville you have to go past my road. This is just so frustrating. With me calling the last six years, and that does not include the other people on this road that have made calls, you would think that Frontier would see the need and get it out here. I have had the opportunity to work from home for the last few years, but am unable to because broadband is not in my area. My daughter is going to college this year and could greatly benefit from it.
If customers in Belleville and Rockport can get it, I can't figure out why we can't with all the new technology we have.
