Why do some areas of the county have slow or no service?

Building infrastructure is significantly more expensive in rural areas with rough terrain than in urban areas. This makes it more difficult for ISPs to profit from those investments. Providers sometimes perform minimal network maintenance and upgrades for the same reason, leaving customers with slower speeds and older technologies.
