Northcoast Broadband vs. the NCRA
Some don't know we only have one main broadband line coming into the county that was only recently completed. Now, some folks are looking into getting another one up and running since the current one is seen as vulnerable to disruption as it runs through the Eel River Valley and thus subject to landslides and flooding. At first I thought this might just be another one of those cases of people with too much time on their hands but, actually, it does sound like a good idea to have a back up.
Funny how the North Coast Railroad line goes through the same area and was constantly getting shut down from flood damage and landslides yet the NCRA keeps wanting to rebuild that line rather than maybe looking for an alternate route as the broadband folks propose for a back up.
