Maximizing Broadband Services to Rural Communities Hardback
Edited by Viktor B. Haynesworth, Alan R. Harrison
This book focuses on the challenges for providing reliable, affordable broadband access of the rural small businesses.
Experience has shown that broadband can bring economic revitalisation to small towns by creating clusters of small businesses.
Broadband service can also help farmers and farm-related businesses control costs and optimise production.
This technology can provide real-time access to whether reports, fertilisation guidance, and livestock tracking.
Farming communities must maximum the use of high-tech Internet access to ensure further development.
The authors are concerned that many of our country's rural and agricultural-based communities are not yet fully realising the potential of value of broadband services to their economies.
As more of these communities gain high-speed access to the Internet, the next challenge is to help them use the access effectively to help create jobs and sustain growth.
There are many debates going on right now about broadband policy.
