United Soybean Board Studies Broadband Importance for Farms

— Written By

The United Soybean Board has reported interesting and important information regarding the importance of broadband for US farms. Some key points are as follows:

  • U.S. farmers in rural America feel the impact of limited broadband connectivity, including limitations on improving farm economic and environmental sustainability and reinvesting in their businesses.
  • There is a critical need to improve rural broadband access, which has implications far beyond quality-of-life concerns. Improved internet reliability impacts the livelihood of rural communities.
  • Farmers’ needs for internet access are projected to grow. The value they bring to the U.S. economy could multiply significantly with fast, reliable broadband access.
