Why doesn't Gloucester allow Internet providers such as Metrocast to come into rural neighborhoods to install high speed internet? Each independent company contacted says that due to a Cox contract with Gloucester County they are forbidden to install high speed cable. If you have a Gloucester address, Cox has the monopoly. As an example, Cobbs Creek, Susan, etc. has high speed Internet since Metrocast saw the need. The very county that says we need more internet availability is blocking residents from options other than Cox. Why would Gloucester County agree to a contract like this? No progress has been made in the last decade with providing high speed internet to those of us without it. Regular updates would also be helpful or at the very least, a 2-, 5- or 10-year plan would be helpful.
