24/7 Wall St.:
In much of the country, access to affordable, high-speed internet is taken for granted. However, in vast sections of the United States broadband internet is either unavailable or too expensive for low-income families. The Federal Communications Commission, the Small Business Committee, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture have all urged service providers to expand to rural areas. But the companies contend that it would cost far more to run lines or install wireless towers in these remote areas than the profits that could be made from the few low-income families that live there.
