When it comes to securing economic development for Madison County, does the current governmental setup work, or could it be better?

County commissioner Terry Chandler raised the issue Monday, suggesting the commissioners create a committee composed of local leaders to study the most efficient way to bring business to the county.

If the providers are doing what AT&T did a couple of decades ago in Sandy Springs (Atlanta) then they want feedback from residents as to how many are willing to pay for their service. The most in one area is where they will install the broadband first. Maybe if individuals keep calling their offices with requests for the service it would help facilitate the installations. It took over three years before I got underground fiber optic cable in Sandy Springs, years of getting mailings saying it's coming, it's coming. If you called to ask when, they took that as future interest while telling you it's coming, again.
