I was last a resident of San Francisco and enjoyed the unquestioned ability to access high-speed internet with ease. Since I operate a small business, access was primary!!! After my move to a rural Sonoma County, I can now appreciate the loss experienced by those without high-speed access. I could make a cup of tea in the time it took dial-up to load a web page... and obviously, could NOT run a business under those circumstances. Having discovered the dedicated efforts of those at AVISP in providing this rural valley with access is INVALUABLE!!! Everyone should be as connected.
