Currently there is one fiber optic cable connecting Eureka to the Internet. When that is accidentally cut, business stops. No credit or debit card sales, no automatic inventory re-ordering. The cable fails about once a year. If we connected to the data centers in The Dalles we could continue to be in business. The telecom companies have already designed the system but are waiting for a "big player" to sign on to finance the construction. This is a "shovel ready" construction project that would employ Americans.
