America’s communities are more connected than ever before. The U.S. telecommunications industry innovates to connect rural and urban communities – and everywhere in between. As a result, 92% of Americans have high-speed internet to access health care, education, e-commerce, job training, and more. And the industry continues to deploy broadband to help close the remaining gaps.
Broadband delivers much more than just the internet, it also creates opportunities; connects businesses across the country, from small towns to big cities; enables relatives who lives thousands of miles apart to be together virtually; strengthens first responders by giving them tools to respond quickly to emergencies.
