This amazes me. I live 7 miles from downtown Asheville. Live here all my life sorry to say. I live in Reems Creek 1 mile off Reems Creek Road and have tried for 15 years to get Cable TV.

Cable Television started in 1959. And here I site in the years 2010 in a county of over 200,000 people and can’t get cable TV 7 miles from the center of Asheville.

You and your band of dreamers are worried about getting high speed internet as a gift from Google.

How about if Buncombe County required Charter to provide the tax paying citizens of Good ol’ Buncombe with cable TV first. That would be a step out of the 20th century.

And the time and money spent on this Google project will be a huge wasted. Google could careless about Asheville, just like Charter could care less about providing cable to the tax payers that deserve it. Nothing ever changes in Buncombe County. It’s always been the good ol’ boy network at it’s finest. We can’t even choose who picks up our trash that we pay for. And you think Google is going to come to Asheville and spend money. Ha.

Gigabit bandwidth pipes could end cable television.
