Perhaps you’re readers would find this of interest:

“Too many rural areas in America still have slow broadband service. San Juan Islands (Washington State) used to have only DSL (1 Mbps) service provided by CenturyLink, and spotty cellular phone coverage from AT&T and Verizon. Recently, however, Orcas Power and Light (OPALCO), a rural electric cooperative, created a wholly owned private subsidiary called Rock Island Communications (RIC) to meet local demand for faster broadband.”
