Access to Smart City technologies and applications that high-speed broadband enables has become one of the most critical factors in any community’s economic development, affecting everything from our children’s education, to housing values, enterprise development, and health and welfare services for the poor and elderly. This is especially true in rural America, where access to high-speed broadband underpins any strategy for future economic growth – and is key to overcoming the “digital divide” and economic dislocation that continues to plague many of our small towns and rural communities across the nation. Many states have built extensive middle mile fiber networks, and for many rural communities the next step is to provide “last mile” connection for municipal, residential or commercial customers. But broadband speeds and dependability vary widely between DSL, cable, fiber, wireless and fixed wireless technologies, and can be dramatically affected by distance and terrain. Installation and running costs can vary enormously. So how do you know what “last mile” architecture and technologies are best for your rural community? This webinar, the second in our series on rural broadband issues sponsored by APA’s Technology Division, explores the key data drivers that are creating demand for greater bandwidth in rural communities, and describes the evolving technologies (wired and wireless) that are becoming available to meet that rapidly expanding data demand.
