To the editor:
It is with a big chuckle that I read that Alexandria’s city government was recently named a digital leader (“Group names Alexandria top digital city,” November 12).
The irony! This same city government has been responsible for giving Alexandria citizens some of the most regressive high-speed Internet connectivity in the region. Comcast, infamous for its poor customer service, has long held a de facto monopoly on broadband access, and will continue to do so for years to come.
Evidently, city leaders have been very generous to themselves with our high local taxes and far less so to us Alexandrians. It’s clear what their priorities are.
