On Thursday, the FCC will consider proposals to improve broadband mapping and reform the commission’s rural health care program. To help them get thinking, the House Agriculture Committee will host Rural Broadband Day 2019 tomorrow. It will be a day to bring increased visibility to issues surrounding rural broadband, poor FCC mapping, and service availability.
Members of the House Agriculture Committee will use this day to highlight the impact rural broadband has on their districts and constituents, engaging with local government officials and stakeholders to examine the benefits of improved access to affordable, fast, and expanded broadband internet connectivity.
They are inviting people will rural broadband stories to join the conversation by using the hashtag #RuralBroadbandDay across social media platforms when they share stories.
