Pick Us Google!

Hello Google,

No, we're not having parades, renaming our children, or jumping into shark tanks to get your attention.  We're not because, like you, we know that it's content not cuteness that's important.  We know how important broadband technology is to the world and how it has and will continue to make a difference in our very special part of that world.  We're not new to this.  In fact, we've been working hard for years (just look at the time line on the right).  That's why we're recognized as national leaders in rural broadband policy.  So, enjoy the others' stunts.  We admit, they are fun to watch.  Then, when you are really ready to get serious, take some time to get to know us.   It's not that we're afraid to have fun up here.  It's just that we take you and this subject very seriously.  It's about making a difference in our community.  It's about our future.
