WHY RURAL? WHY SHOULD WE CARE?
RURAL BROADBAND AND THE LANDSCAPE
The United States grapples with a deep digital divide in which those who need broadband access the most—the poor in rural areas—are the least likely to be connected, representing approx 40 million ppl. These rural areas are also home to farmers, ranchers and agriculture producers who contribute $1.053 Trillion to the U.S. gross domestic product, a 5.4% share. (USDA)
More reliable connection can translate to better job opportunities for working rural poor, more competition among farmers, and better education for kids.
Our solutions focus on the space between where traditional providers have left a digital gap.
By connecting the very heart of rural regions, agriculture production, with a 21st century communication and data transfer infrastructure, we fully engage a new, emerging digital economy to not only close the gap disparity, but seamlessly blend into existing urban networks. Thus, creating socio-economic and industry indifference amongst thriving regions.
