Senator Gillibrand Pushes Rural Broadband Bill [telecom]

By Laura Hamilton, CED, November 29, 2016

Rural access to high-speed broadband is generally a problem. And most of us who lean hard on internet access and are living in a major metro area don't feel the pain unless we're on a pastoral vacation or visiting relatives for what turns out to be a low-speed holiday. If you've had the experience, it can be a shock to the system.

An estimated 34 million Americans don't have access to high-speed broadband, according to the FCC. Additionally, around 30 percent of American households haven't adopted high-speed broadband and that level is even higher in low-income communities.
