Words from Oregon Republican Congressman Greg Walden outlined the benefits of a strong Internet presence in rural communities.

Rural communities with access to quality internet service are seeing remarkable benefits. It’s happening in our fields, our ranches and our communities, boosting our quality of life and especially the local economy. Internet-connected technologies are transforming the agriculture industry, a major driver of many state economies throughout the West. Farmers and ranchers are growing crops and feeding their cattle with more success and at less cost. Ranchers are using wireless transmitters and the internet to monitor their cattle in-take. This helps operators recognize the highest quality beef for buyers.
