Amendment supports rural broadband

An anonymous reader writes ""If you live in the city or a well-populated county, Internet access is probably something you take for granted.

But if you’re in a rural area, it may be nearly impossible to get.

State and federal programs exist to help bring broadband Internet to rural areas—in part because broadband access is nearly a must for businesses these days, so broadband is a potential economic development tool.

But those programs could work better.

Last week, Sen. Mark Warner and others successfully inserted an amendment into the 2012 Farm Bill to help focus the federal government’s existing rural broadband program on truly rural areas.""
