Broadband 101: CCG Consulting

The Ever-Widening Broadband Gap

It’s really easy to look at the difference between rural broadband and broadband in towns today and assume that today’s gap has to be closed. The reality is that the speeds, amount of bandwidth, and the way that folks in cities use broadband continue to grow at a rapid rate, and that means that the rural areas fall more behind every year. This is another reason not to built broadband that’s ready for the future. If somebody invests in a 25 Mbps or 50 Mbps technology today, that network is still going to have an astronomical gap compared to an urban network even 5 years from now. I would present this by myself. I know I can hold people’s interest when I get on my soapbox.
