The House Agriculture Committee proposed a three-year program to invest more than $7 billion to improve rural broadband access in America.
Rural Americans fall significantly behind their urban counterparts in terms of access to high-speed internet. According to the Center for Rural Innovation, more than 20 percent of Americans lack access to high-speed internet. The proposal would focus on the most rural and least-connected residents, which are often the most expensive to connect.
