Spotlight: Broadband in Rural America

Welcome to the new Connected Intelligence Spotlights, short video presentations looking at key issues based on our portfolio of research.

In this first report, we take a look at the broadband challenge in the United States. 31 percent of households in the US do not have broadband and that is causing a significant inequality in how we shop, do business and educate, especially during this pandemic. Based on our Rural America and Technology report, published last year, this short video (under 5 minutes) highlights the broadband issue and some of the consequences.
