9780761845522: Digital Deliverance: Dragging Rural America, Kicking and Screaming, Into the Information Economy

This book offers a practice-based approach to developing strategies for utilizing broadband telecommunications for rural economic development. Edwards addresses four key questions in the publication: 1) How important is broadband telecommunications in the achievement of rural economic development success in the information-based economy? 2) What are the critical factors in assessing the potential of rural communities to utilize broadband telecommunications for economic development? 3) What policy trends are proposed to assist communities in the advancement of telecommunication-based economic development strategies? And 4) How can local leadership assist in the implementation of broadband for economic development success? By answering these important questions, Edwards provides the reader a step-by-step, practice-oriented framework for implementing a rural economic development planning strategy through the implementation of broadband telecommunications. Broadband connectivity is vital for rural communities to be actively engaged in the global information economy, but being connected is not enough. Utilization of technology is required if communities want to increase their potential for economic development success.
