With each passing day, the demand for broadband Internet continues to grow. The Internet is utilized nationally and even globally for just about everything - education, employment, healthcare, shopping, entertainment, and socialization. Due to the increased reliance we as a culture have placed on the Internet, demand has shifted from "nice to have" to "necessity". Still, rural areas are not served adequately when it comes to quality Internet access.
We're trying to change that. Our rural broadband initiatives can be summed up in three categories: in town, near town, and outside of town. Each category presents its own unique challenges, and as we overcome these obstacles we will be able to drastically improve the level of connectivity for rural residents.
