Filling out the following NYS survey about broadband and asking my husband the answers to questions about which I am uninformed, he asked, “why are you doing so much work for them for free?” Good point. The reason was I was ultimately wishing to ask about our electrical grid that goes out periodically for no reason. This is a more crucial issue than broadband. Again one wishes to remind that our NYS NYSEG utility company is owned by a company in Spain, which nation is quite friendly with Russia. More power to them, but another FACT is the increasing electrical rates in our area, the unreliable service, and the enormous cost transferred from local-community, poverty-burdened Upstate NY people to wealthy corporations in Spain.
