In the span of just a few decades, broadband – or high-speed – internet has become a standard 21st-century tool both in the workplace and at home. Yet a surprising number of rural communities in the U.S. currently lack access to speeds fast enough to complete regular household or school tasks, with some areas forced to go without wired connections altogether. The holes in internet connectivity across the country are placing barriers to career and educational growth, suppressing rural incomes and home values and causing population declines. Without faster technology, the future survival of many rural towns is at risk.
