Broadband Internet Could Bring A Half-Million Jobs
The Federal Communications Commission says the plan to bring broadband Internet to rural America could produce a half-million jobs. NextGov reports that the FCC is looking to create more than 111,000 jobs per $1 billion spent. The agency plans to redirect $4.5 billion from landline operations at rural phone companies toward broadband. They believe it'll take about six years to create more than 500,000 jobs.
