A lack of access to broadband internet service is perceived as a major problem among twenty-four percent of rural adults, according to a recent Pew Research Center survey. An additional thirty-four percent of surveyed rural adults perceive the lack of high-speed internet to be a minor problem. Federal and state funding is in place to help close the gap, but only fifty-eight percent of rural residents currently have active subscriptions to broadband internet, according to the Pew Research Center. Nearly twenty-two percent of those living in rural communities do not go online for any reason.
The days when wireless phones were mostly used outside have been gone for decades. As landline service has phased out in favor of cellular, subscribers have come to expect good to superior indoor coverage.
Today, up to eighty percent of all wireless traffic starts and ends indoors, according to a CommScope report. In-building wireless coverage can be impacted by multiple factors, including the building’s materials, its layout, the surrounding environment, and the person’s location within the building.
