New report shows lack of broadband access
If you have high speed internet, you're in the minority in West Virginia. A new federal report released this week by the FCC shows West Virginia ranks number one in the US for people without high speed internet, with 46 percent without access. Things change quickly and the report is based on data from June of 2011, but it at that time West Virginia lagged behind other states with limited broadband, like South Dakota and Montana. 46 percent of those who live in West Virginia can't get broadband, and when you consider rural areas it's even worse. Sixty percent of rural residents can't get high-speed.
