 Improvising Broadband Access In Rural Areas

"Broadband Internet service, either via DSL or cable, is generally most economical to deliver in densely populated areas. DSL is distance sensitive, and generally only feasible within three miles of the nearest central office switch. Since utility companies are not mandated to provide high speed Internet service the way they are required to provide basic telephone service, there are many regions where broadband service is not available, and probably won't be anytime soon."
