I am increasingly impressed by the broadband efforts Oregon-based companies and communities. In my InBox, I had a press release from Preferred Connections, which has just launched broadband services in Klamath Falls using National Broadband‘s fiber network. “The broadband revolution has bypassed smaller communities across the country,” said Russ Wright, President of National Broadband. “By working with PCINW we are making it possible for businesses outside of major metropolitan areas to take advantage of affordable high-speed Internet connections for their work and personal use. We are truly bridging the ‘digital divide’ for rural America.”
I had written about Always-On Networks, a rural fixed wireless company earlier, and there is so much Wi-Fi activity in the state that it seems to me that it will soon surpass rest of the country in terms of broadband penetration.
