Moved to Broadlands last month. Am happy with everything, --great schools, great neighborhood, great neighbors (I am sure) . I could not understand just one thing. The mandatory communications package. I have to pay $18/month for the phone which can be used only for local calls. If I dare call my previous neighbors in Maryland, I costs me three times more than hand it costs me to call me sister half way across the world in India. Hmm.... And the television.... a bunch of nickle channels which no one watches. Internet access is not bad, except I gotta supply my own wireless router. I found myself scratching my head, $155/month for all this? What was HOA board thinking before signing this contract? Now that I know we are in deep legal troubles can anyone give a primer on the whole openband issue. When was this contract signed? Why will it expire?
