From rural areas where broadband doesn’t exist to poor areas where it’s unaffordable, millions go without internet access just when they need it most.

“The Federal Communications Commission estimates that more than 21 million people in the US don’t have a broadband connection with download speeds of at least 25 megabits per second. That includes nearly three in 10 people, or about 27%, who live in rural areas where broadband infrastructure simply isn’t available. It also includes about 2% of people who live in cities where broadband is available but who aren’t subscribed to service.”

“Experts, like the two Democrats on the FCC — Rosenworcel and Geoffrey Starks — agree and they’ve been pushing the agency to take immediate action to help connect people in places where broadband service is available.”
