- The Great Divide: Division of Internet Access among Urban and Rural Areas
America is a leader in many aspects of technology. However, there is still a vast divide regarding internet access between urban and rural areas. In some rural counties, households with access to high-speed internet are less than 70 percent.
This divide has become increasingly apparent in recent years as internet access becomes a necessity in modern society. It’s not only important for students who do schoolwork online or watch educational videos, but it’s also increasingly necessary for adults to find jobs and businesses to stay competitive.
The global pandemic has only amplified this divide, as many people find themselves working and attending school from home. COVID also highlighted the need for internet access regarding communication, health care, entertainment, and even shopping for basic necessities.
Without reliable access to the internet, rural communities are at a disadvantage — especially from being excluded from these opportunities.
Fortunately, there is hope for bridging the digital divide in rural America. Amplex internet is a company that provides high-speed internet service to rural areas of. Our mission is to supply fast, reliable internet access even in the most remote areas.
