USDA’s New Broadband Program Bringing Service to Rural America

USDA has announced tens of millions of dollars in combined funding will go to Premier Communications (Iowa), GRM Networks (MO), Star Communications (NC) and Oklahoma Western Telephone Company (OK) to improve connectivity for rural households, small business and farms.

It’s been really exciting to hear the announcements along with the presence from USDA at each of these announcements – from the national operation to the state Rural Development directors.
