Some Hoosiers Cannot Access Quick Internet
A small portion of Indiana does not have access to fast Internet.
Geoff Schomacker is the director of project development with the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs.
He said broadband is not available in about 4-percent of Indiana because the spot it too hard to reach or it would cost too much.
19 million Americans cannot access broadband.
Indiana's gap seems small when compared to West Virginia. The Federal Communications Commission reported nearly half of the Mountain State does not have broadband.
Schomacker said fiber-optic and wireless technology will help close Indiana's broadband gap.
The FCC wants everyone to have broadband access by 2020.
