How Mobile Internet is Helping Improve Educational Access in Rural Areas

May 7, 2023 by · Leave a Comment 

With the advent of new technologies, students have experienced unparalleled access to information and educational aids. At the click of a mouse, students can learn about important historical facts, the solutions to difficult math problems, and the latest advances in science. However, in areas with limited access to high-speed broadband Internet such as rural towns in America, educational processes can be disrupted by a lack of Internet access.

It is no secret that rural America has an infrastructural problem when it comes to broadband Internet access. Because of the lack of suitable infrastructure, it is too costly for most mainstream Internet service providers to offer Internet for rural areas. As a result, rural areas have been forced to rely on outdated rural Internet service providers, such as dial-up Internet companies like AOL. The underwhelming service these Internet providers offer makes it harder for students to get help for their homework or research topics related to their schoolwork.

Luckily, mobile Internet providers like UbiFi have found ways to use rural towns’ existing infrastructure to provide high-speed, low-latency Internet for everyday needs including work, health, and education. Through the use of 4G and 5G cell towers scattered throughout rural America, UbiFi and other mobile Internet companies can send Internet signals to rural towns with less lag and delays than the service provided by dial-up and satellite Internet providers. UbiFi and its mobile Internet cohorts make the Internet more accessible to students all over rural America, improving their overall quality of life in the process.

Be sure to check if you are in the coverage area of your chosen mobile Internet provider before committing to their service for a year.
