Same frustration here. Goshen Valley is not exactly remote, it is centrally located, with a large population of commuters, between Rogersville, Kingsport, and Greeneville, and easy access to I-81 in Baileyton. Yet it is a communications black hole, and unsafe. Only internet and TV is expensive, slow, unreliable satellite. AT&T landlines don't work well. No cell service - I have to drive several miles to make a phone call if the weather is bad, causing the internet to go out. Even the sheriff's department can't get a radio signal! Why this area would not be considered an "emergency" broadband priority makes no sense.
