Title:Broadband Coverage and Social Transition in Rural Communities
Author(s):Du, Yunfei
Subject(s):information services

Abstract:Rural and small communities in the United States are often hindered by limited budget and support from smaller tax-bases, which in turn results in higher cost of information infrastructure development and operation. This paper addresses a possible model of the impact of broadband coverage (such as ADSL, Wire, Cable, and Fiber Optic) to social transition in rural areas. Open data on US broadband and interview data were presented. Coverage on rural Texas was illustrated in this paper.
