A $43 billion bill from the House Agriculture Committee was introduced and approved this week to bring broadband service to hundreds of thousands whom do not have access. This bill was created after the pandemic forced most Americans to heavily rely on internet for shopping, education and health care resources — 35% of U.S. rural families lacked internet access. Over the course of eight years the money will be allotted to small towns and rural areas for the construction or improvement of internet service. Find out how the funds will be divided.
