USCA pushes for broadband access and adoption

In a recent letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) about the Commission’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on new net neutrality recommendations, the U.S. Cattlemen’s Association (USCA) outlined benefits that broadband technology affords individuals living in rural America.

“The benefits that broadband technology affords Americans are especially valuable to those living in rural areas. Agriculture producers rely on broadband technology to make critical decisions based on real-time market data. Broadband creates opportunities for telemedicine, telework, and distance learning. These applications connect rural Americans to important resources, while eliminating inconvenient travel time and costs,” stated the letter.

“Equitable access and adoption of broadband should be the FCC’s main objective,” noted USCA. “The Commission must develop a National Broadband Plan that promotes universal broadband deployment and adoption, rather than pursuing policies that could detract from this goal.”
