There’s another Internet choice

To the Editor:

Regarding the Feb. 4 editorial about broadband access in the Adirondacks, you probably have already heard this but there is another option. I am sending this from Paradox Lake via Verizon Wireless.

Using an iphone hotspot along with a wireless booster equipped with a roof antenna we are getting 1 mb/sec download speeds. Previously we only had dial up access.

Expanding cell service in the Adirondacks might be the answer. To Verizon and others there may be a business case to provide both voice and data by expanding their coverage. I know the APA wouldn't care for this but the time has come to allow these necessary services.
