Broadband is a fast, reliable connection to the Internet that has the potential to increase opportunities for individuals and businesses. In addition to allowing people to access enormous amounts of useful information, broadband could: Improve public safety, allow people to stay in their homes at later ages with support from telemedicine, help businesses reach customers who are far from the business location, enable people to study from their homes and provide necessary occupational and personal connections for those who would love to stay in (or return to) Spring Hill.
