The house I grew up in and the house my brother still lives in plus the house my Dad lives in now still do not have cable. Central Wisconsin. The land of fresh "dairy-air". Even cell phone service does not work there. Our cottage also does not have cable. It barely has electricity and phone service. They just put up the first cell tower last year. My first cable was after I joined the Army. It was so amazing to see more than 3 channels!
