A Deep Look Into Broadband in Rural America

— Written By

The Foundation for Rural Service has provided a white paper on the importance of connectivity in rural America. It is a go-to resource to understand the issues shaping broadband access, adoption, and utilization. If you only have time to read one resource pick this FRS White Paper. By publishing this report, FRS states the FRS hopes to:

  • Provide the public and other interested parties with information to help them better understand the importance of broadband to life in rural America, the pandemic’s impact on broadband service and the state of rural broadband in the months and years ahead.
  • Equip community leaders with tools to understand broadband’s role in improving the quality of life in their cities, towns and counties.
  • Document the pandemic’s impact on various sectors of society.
  • Encourage a broader national conversation on the importance of broadband to rural citizens in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and its fallout.
