A Series on the Absence of Broadband in America during a Global Pandemic

One year ago around this time, the first few cases of COVID-19 made their way into the US. We all thought it was going to be a quick phase and that work & school would not be phased at all. At this time, so many companies and schools had never once thought about remote learning or remote work as a possibility or even a need. But just a few short weeks later, everything dramatically changed, and one of the greatest tolls on internet connectivity in the US was about to unfold.

Throughout this series of posts in the coming weeks, I will explore the infrastructure surrounding internet providers, how they handled the rise in traffic, how rural communities are doing, and how small companies are handling this new endeavor.

Stay tuned for future posts!
