To All Residents of Boydton:

There is something going on that many of you likely aren't aware of. Over the last year, there have been at least 3 companies attempting to offer another high speed wireless internet service to the Town & its' residents. Your elected officials are clearly standing in the way of you having a choice in high speed internet services. You will have no competition if the Mayor & Town Coucil continue to act questionably on your behalf. They have done all they can to derail or obstruct these attempts while keeping this issue from the "Public Radar". The time has come to air this in public like the radio waves you are being denied access to.

Here are some facts known & verified:

- Publicly Owned Structures & Revenue - Each time, the companies offered market rated rent to locate equipment on the publicly owned water tanks & provide DSL grade service. This is common in communications to rent space, just not at cellular rates & the antennas are not large or heavy for wireless. Service to a community & choices of such services enhances the educational, economic & "quality of life" requirements to be a part of the "Information Age" known to you who are reading Topix online. The fact that even non-broadband services would require "permission" from any 1 company calls into question 911 services having unrestricted access to the same structures.
