Giving the disabled and homebound a chance to 'hike' a volcano via Virtual Photo Walks

I am so glad to see the article by PBS NewsHour via: PBS on how Virtual Photo Walks has helped the disabled.
Looks like I may no longer be able to participate in Virtual Photo Walks, because CenturyLink DSL says that they can't fix my DSL problem.
My 3.0mbps CenturyLink DSL subscription should at least be giving me at least 1.50mbps, but I am getting less than 1.0mbps, sometimes even less than dial up speeds. So it isn't fast enough for a stable video connection. I have realized how reliant I am on a high speed internet connection for everything, especially since I am disabled. Those of us in the rural areas are really hard hit by either lack of availability of high speed internet service at all, or very poor service if they can get it.
If it can't be fixed, I just want to say that I have enjoyed my time as a participant, and as a helper. I loved seeing the places that I have never gotten to see in person, and probably
never will. I want to thank John Butterill for what he has done with Virtual Photo Walks.
Take care,
Jamie Todd
