Another option for some will be Great Auk Wireless. They are currently working on a wireless system that will encompass winhall, londonderry, Peru and Landgrove. This should have been mentioned in the article. I would not count on Fairpoint since I have been Trying to get them to improve coverage in South Londonderry and having no success.

I got no G's. Not even an F. Barely a dailup connection. FairPoint sucks.
I should move to Willowbrook.

I remember being on that Fairpoint "List" to get internet. I remember asking specifically if they would be covering my area, and repeatedly being told they would. Fairpoint came and left this summer, did not cover my village, and now has no plan to in the future.
The majority of the expansion in my area covered households that already had access through cable. When we see numbers on internet expansion, these numbers are not accurate when we count households that already had access. Oversite on how tax dollars are spent to expand internet seems not to exist.
Fairpoint, you did not keep your word on this expansion. Government, you need to actually regulate these grants so public money is spent to actually reach the people who do not have internet access. While higher populated areas get more and more options for faster and faster internet speeds, outlying areas that have no access still wait. Grant money used where Fairpoint should be investing on its own, is grant money misused.
