Out side of satellite there are no internet options here. Been a resident for over a month. If I had know living less then a block from the post office, bank, and less the a mile from a public school I wouldn’t have access to the internet I would have moved elsewhere fast. Century link is out here however they can’t add anymore people to the service. Which is completely pathetic. Considering the house came with a high speed dsl century link box on it. I truly believe if I had a business in town I would get access to high speed internet no problem. The town need to desperately explore internet options!

I grew up here, and there is no place else I rather live. Good people, small town, has almost everything you would need and what it doesn't have its not a far drive from.
