RURAL MUNICIPAL BROADBAND – SUCCESS IN RIO BLANCO COUNTY
The Precipice of Rural Municipal Broadband
Are you a city or town that is considering offering middle and last mile rural municipal broadband connectivity? The need for ubiquitous fiber and wireless infrastructure is at a precipice. Moreover, the pandemic is now driving more people to rural communities and students into remote learning. If we do not act soon, some rural communities will get left behind and decline. While others with broadband will flourish.
