Yesterday, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced funding for telephone utilities to build, expand and improve broadband in their rural service territories across 15 states.

Vilsack stated that, “Today’s funding will provide residents of these rural communities with high speed internet connections to improve healthcare and educational opportunities and connect to global markets. In addition to providing much needed services to rural businesses and residents, these investments will increase jobs, not just in the near term, but through expanded opportunities in rural areas.”
