What's your favorite Guster album? Seeing your bro tomorrow night! Similarly, are you as good of a singer as he is? Also, thank you for fighting for Net Neutrality, we appreciate your efforts.

I'm a fan of Lost and Gone Forever. Though I also like Easy Wonderful (and especially the Do You Love Me video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7k-VAlIPzKg). I suspect my parents are the only ones who can legitimately claim they have both a rocker and regulator for children.

I live in Central Kentucky but make my way out to Eastern Kentucky/Appalachian areas quite frequently. The network infrastructure leaves lot to be desired.

What can I do at the local level to help support wider access to broadband internet to the indigent or very rural areas?

And thank you for what you do. You're fighting the good fight, and I appreciate all that you do.

You're right. We have a real problem with broadband access in rural America. There are 34 million Americans without access to broadband at home, 23 million of them live in rural communities. We need a plan to ensure that high-speed service reaches them where they live. I think for starters we need to know today where service is and is not. But right now the national broadband map is 3 years out of date. Data that is three years old is like a lifetime in the internet age. We need to fix this. But I don't think that Washington should wait--we can begin by asking the public directly and using the wisdom of crowds. To this end, I set up an e-mail address at the FCC to take in comments about where service is lacking and what can be done to improve it. So please write in to broadbandfail@fcc.gov and let me know your stories. You can be a part of fixing this infrastructure problem.
