What is broadband? What does it mean to Montevideo

Montevideo American News is apparently starting a series on broadband. The first installment focuses on modes of broadband, how to understand speeds and the history of the Broadband Task Force – at least back to 2011.

Here’s an excerpt…

As the world becomes smaller in terms of globalization, access to high speed Internet is no longer seen as a luxury. For billions of people throughout the world, as well as millions of businesses, high speed, broadband Internet access is a necessity.

Of course, consumers would like to have the fastest data speeds as possible at the lowest possible price, but technology companies, along with state and local governments, are struggling to keep up with the ever increasing demand for high speed Internet, especially in providing service to rural areas.
