Broadband telecommunications in rural America: Emerging infrastructures for residential service
This article reviews the recent history of rural telecommunications policy in the USA and assesses the social significance of emerging patterns of infrastructure development in the residential market. Rural America provides an interesting laboratory for experimenting with the shared and divergent interests of two major players in broadband telecommunications which are mainly at odds, namely the telephone and cable industries. These interests, and their significance for current political and economic developments in rural America, are analysed in detail below. A brief overview of rural telecommunications development in the state of Indiana is provided for illustrative purposes.
