There is a scientifically documented “digital divide” between urban and rural areas regarding broadband access. At the end of 2015, 74% of urban households in the U.S. had broadband connections, compared to just 64% of rural households having this service. Of the individuals with — Rural Internet service, only 55% of them have access to speeds that are considered broadband, while 94% of the urban population does. This is a gap that has remained constant through the years.
In an effort to reduce the number of rural households without wireless internet services, Yellow Jacket Broadband has introduced a new service that works anywhere in the country, without fail. With the services offered by this innovative company, customers who had no access in the past can now enjoy 3G/4G broadband internet to their home, regardless of where they live.
“For the majority of people in the U.S., having consistent and reliable high-speed wireless internet is something that is often taken for granted,” stated company representative Robert Herrie. “This isn’t always the case for those who are living in rural areas. In fact, the high-speed internet options in rural areas are typically limited, or non-existent. However, thanks to the 3G and 4G internet services from our company, things are beginning to change.”
Broadband is defined by the Federal Communications Commission as connections that could transfer data at a rate of 200 kilobytes per second in one direction. This is four times faster than the historical dial-up modems used in the past, which worked at a speed of 56 kbps. This is a threshold that is continued to rise and only 75% of rural Americans that have internet service have access to fixed (rather than mobile) connections of at least 10 mbps, while 98% of urban customers do. These rates still don’t represent the fasted speeds available today.
“We provide these wireless services by utilizing a network of cellular towers that transmit high-speed internet access right to the consumers,” continued Herrie. “We also provide our customers with installation kits, which include an antenna, modem and signal booster. We believe our internet services are helping rural communities throughout America get connected.”
Thanks to efforts from companies like Yellow Jacket Broadband, internet is now available to some of the most rural parts of the country. This is great news for rural broadband advocates that are working hard to help get rural America connected.
