Comcast has struck a deal with the Massachussetts Broadband Institute at MassTech to extend broadband services to nine towns in the western and northern-central towns.
The deal will pay the company $4 million in reimbursment for parcial project costs whom have existing networks in each of the towns.
Finally the savages over in Buckland, Conway, Chester, Hardwick, Northfield, Shelburne, Pelham, Montague, and Huntington can finally get a taste of high society living, even if it is only on their computers. Who knows if they even have computers over there, they don't have broadband so why would they have computers, as space heaters?
Essentially, the MBI is paying $4 million for 1089 people/businesses to get shitty internet from Comcast.
The MBI is paying $3,673.09 to provide Comcasts internet services per new person/business.
Who is the MBI? Who gave them authority to buy other people internet service? Deval Patrick, the former Governer of this great state formed MBI in the year of 2008. Their self proclaimed goal, to provide "affordable" internet/broadband across the state. But how do we know that, how do we know for certain that these MBI people aren't just setting up deals for their buddies over at Comcast. I mean it doesn't really make sense? Comcast is the worst, customer service, reliability, tech support you name it, they suck at it. So why would a government agency decide to provide people without internet (or without good internet), Comcast?
If it ain't Crab people, then I don't a god damn thing. The Crab people haven't been a thorn in the side of humanity for a thousand years, since they were banished to the center of the Earth following the Kindling Wars.
I can't think of any other answer. I can't bring myself to think that a state government agency formed under the glorious of all glory, Deval Patrick, could be so stupid or corrupt. You can't corrupt the uncorruptable.
