it's sad to say but i completely distrust anything the government says. i'd be worried if they said they were going to get broadband for rural areas. all they would do is include areas that already have broadband as rural, discount areas that aren't near an exchange and say they have improved the situation, while somehow making it worse.
too much time is spent trying to make the other parties look bad instead of actually doing anything.
I agree though, at least he tried.
