Where the heck's my broadband?

When almost 200 of you signed the petition started at the beginning of 2006 urging AT&T to step up or get out of the county, AT&T put itself on record in late April in Bob Walter's Sacramento Bee column that it would expand broadband availability in the county by the end of the year.

But don't call up AT&T's high speed Internet department and expect to place an order for service considering that year end is just a couple of weeks away. When I did this week, I was told that was impossible because there's no planned date for rolling out service in my broadband black hole not far from U.S. 50.

Par for the course for Ma Bell despite speedy sounding rhetoric in 2002 "Project Pronto" (It wasn't) and AT&T's latest "get ready, it's coming" hype, "Project Lightspeed."
