Welcome to Groton, Connecticut. Situated amidst the Thames and Mystic Rivers and the shores of Long Island Sound, the town is home to fishermen, businesses and a submarine base. They all have one thing in common: they have access to satellite broadband internet.
Groton prides itself on the fact that they have a real investment in the Naval Submarine base. They backed this up by committing $11 million dollars in 2009 to help improve the infrastructure to keep the base from closing. The Pentagon has tried on two occasions to target the base for shutdown, in 1993 and 2005, but the generous efforts of the population enabled it to remain open.
