I just got a heads up on IRL’s podcast on rural broadband – All Access Pass. Here’s the description from their website…
What is life like without fast Internet, and how does life change once a person has it? Should Internet access be a right, rather than a luxury? Veronica Belmont explores these questions as she talks to people about joining the digital economy. Inspiring stories of access are surfaced by members of a small Minnesota community and by a Syrian refugee who found hope in Amsterdam.
So there’s a nice nod to RS Fiber and their “Just Do It” approach to rural broadband. Love to see those guys get recognition because – just do it sounds easy but it wasn’t.
But mostly I really enjoy this podcast because it looks at rural broadband as a new topic. So this is one to share with the policymaker or the city cousin that doesn’t get it. The one who thinks everyone has broadband or that it’s only for Netflix or that you’re just too cheap to pay for a better connection
