I have to ask, Are we really treated equal?
AS a medical transcriptionist with the opportunity to work from home (and there are a lot of these opportunities) and not commute 100+ miles a day with the high gas prices, I cannot because being in a rural area "high speed" internet service is not an option. Don't you think that with the technology we have available that companies would want to take advantage of this. Like the one company shows on their website from caveman to horse and buggy to dialup and then to high speed. We are still living in the caveman era out here. What a shame!
Yes some of us choose to live in these remote rural areas but we really are not treated equally.
I feel that right now with the way the economy is going and gas prices, companies should take advantage of expanding their services. I can just imagine how many billions and billions of dollars they could make, but do they really care? Just like any other job I guess here in the United States it is easier to "outsource overseas" as they apparently have the technology.
56k is really high speed , The super fast stuff breaks down the math isnt that great .
We now have 8 bit analog for sale , 32 bit analong radios and computers in all new police cars which are all wheel drive with new rifels in the squad cars .
Out sourcing does have to end I agree , the lands between canada and the US are mostly settler famalies from thousands of years ago , there was a huge gap between Eskimoe and Indian and the land was sold to those people and they sell it to one another and rent on it still . The europeans influence is there .
