Rural high speed internet isn’t for the birds
Do you have trouble connecting with your kids, your spouse, your parents, your community, maybe even your job?
Trust us, we know connection is a concern, especially when it comes to reliable internet access. We once had a customer tell us that they would drive (daily) to the local Walmart so that their child could gain a Wi-Fi connection in order to get a decent signal to complete their homework.
Let’s think about this for a second. They had to disconnect from the comfort of their home and disconnect from time spent with their entire family in order to connect to the internet for their child to complete a required online assignment. This is just one of the many examples we have heard from community members in rural Indiana areas.
31% of Grade 6-8 and 33% of Grade 9-12 students in the US
have school provided tablets or laptops.
In 2015, 24 percent of employed people did some or all of their work at home.
How is it that we have come so far with technology, education, and social connection while certain rural regions of this country remain so disconnected?
Many, if they are lucky enough to have a connection, must pay a significant amount for services that vary in reliability. We want to provide connectivity to families with school-age children, small business owners, work from home individuals, and many more with the opportunity to connect to real world speeds at affordable prices.
