"Help the Adirondacks" if Z's goal is to drive more business development or telecommuting.

Help the Adirondacks?
The city people control the Adirondacks. Want to keep it forever wild except when it comes to cell service and Internet. How about letting the real Dackers do what they want with their land.

I think that widely accessible broadband could really help the Adirondacks.  I have a hard time working when I come up.  If my daughter is streaming I can't work.

A few years ago I remember SBR posting a photo of "them" installing fiber optic cable on his dirt road in remote Ontario.

How is your connectivity where you are Z?
With Frontier it was pretty crappy.  I had to pay for a double band width DSL line so that in late afternoon whenall the kids came home and got on line I could work

We have Spectrum now for the past couple years which is fiber optic and speeds are good.  I have a Voip to my next office in FL, can be on VPN while my son plays on Xbox and I stream music and it’s good.  I live in the Acres that was mentioned in that article in the paper.

I never really thought about it much, because I never PLANNED to work after I move up. Time will tell if that is required.

Lately I find myself really liking work, but 5 years is a long time.

Since I'll probably never be a real dacker, I'll just root for what I need at the time, I suppose.

Re: Mitigating tourism in the Daks

I know what you mean Harv

My comment was more of a broad stroke. That was always my grandfather's bitch so I feel it my duty to carry it on....lol

That said, when I retire I'm ditching this phone for a new one and only a very few will have the number. As a whole I feel as though we are too accessible.

I think they call it sales.

I heard they put in Fiber to Minerva and it’s working it’s way to North Creek. You may have good connectivity soon

Re: Mitigating tourism in the Daks

So is an article like this in the NY Times a good thing, or not?  It's about using one of the two remaining pontoon plane services for a wilderness camping trip to one of the lakes still approved for that type of access.  Author has been camping in the Adirondacks since he was a boy.

That depends on who you ask.  This topic is very controversial.
