How faster internet helped rural communities stay connected in 2021

December 16, 2021

As 2021 draws to a close, we are looking back at the people and rural communities who have shared with us how access to high-speed internet has benefitted them. Together with local partners, we have been able to provide fast, reliable internet access to rural communities in Indiana, North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia.

When we invest in infrastructure to connect our data centers and enable local partners to purchase excess capacity on these networks their customers reap the benefits of affordable and reliable broadband connectivity. These partnerships provide local residents and businesses with access to remote work, online education, telemedicine, and other vital services. To learn more about these efforts, follow our Network Moments series.

“Broadband is like electricity 100 years ago — every community needs it," says Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam.
