Connect Rural America
Broadband is as critical to rural communities and agriculturally-driven economies as it is across America. We’re calling on policymakers to support rural broadband programs that connect unserved areas and bring our country to 100% connectivity.

Create Thriving Communities
With the rise of smart farming, high-speed internet allows farmers and ranchers to compete, grow, and connect to potential customers. It enables professionals to live and work in rural America, where the cost of living is more affordable. It empowers a new age of digital education, and expands health care options for millions of Americans.
Here’s what you need to know:
- 80% of unconnected Americans live in rural areas.
- 29% of America’s farms do not have access to broadband.
- Connecting these communities and farms would create a potential $47-$65 billion in annual gross benefit for the U.S. economy.
We must ensure that our tax dollars fund broadband programs that close existing gaps and build new broadband networks in rural areas that are currently unserved.
