One thought on “eBay and Amazon See Opportunity in Rural America”

  1. I live in a rural area. Closest big town of over 20000 is almost 100 miles away. We survive on satellite Tv Direct Tv., we have a well for water, a septic tank for sewage and use LP gas for heat…..We do have one modern accessory Electricity. Our internet service which isn’t slow in fact is quit fast is hughes net satellite. This is available anywhere in the world so those that complain of slow service need to get it if they can’t get cable. We are a small town, one gas station and the owner still pumps gas and sells milk. If you need groceries the nearest full grocery story is about 42 miles up the road.

    We wouldn’t give up living here for anything. Two cars on the same road are considered a traffic jam.

    Now for the writer. Postal costs are the same for everyone. Urban or Rural. They pick up your packages for free even where we live and the postal drivers route is over 200 miles a day. Broadband access is available to everyone everywhere. You just have to pay for it. Nothing is free unless you have your hand out. Education can be gotten online on your computer at any time. You might have to pay for that also.

    As a member of a small town of maybe 500 we don’t want big business sticking their noses into our businesses. We do just fine as farmers and small sellers from home on the internet. If you want real money then get an education and get a job in one of those big towns down the road. We like our life just the way it is where everyone helps each other instead of trying to our jones the neighbors.

    If you need things its there. Right on the internet. But then of course you might have to pay something for it. NOTHING IS FREE
