Broadband internet

The Trump Administration and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) are moving forward with plans that would help rural America with Internet connectivity, potentially boosting commerce for agriculture, reports Drovers.

During an announcement at the White House on April 12, President Trump and FCC Chairman Ajit Pai laid out the vision for the “race to 5G,” along with a Rural Digital Opportunity Fund plan.

In addition to the 5G developments, FCC is also going to invest $20.4 billion into high-speed broadband networks across rural America during a 10-year period. The money would come from a yet-to-be-created Rural Digital Opportunity Fund.
