The Future of Rural Telecommunications

What is being done to ensure the survival of rural economies in America? What preparations are being made to bridge the technology gap between urban and rural economies? Is there a danger rural economies will decline if they lack access to the latest technology?

The telecomm technology that brings this message to you did not exist a half century ago. The interaction of telecommunications and information technologies has generated striking innovations, sparking profound changes throughout the economy.

Hudson Institute and the Foundation for Rural Service hosted an economic summit exploring what advances in telecommunications mean for the future of the rural economy.
