Hey Walter, keep your eye on this. There’s legislation afoot to extend broadband penetration into rural areas. Could be some employment opportunities for you in the offing.

In my southwestern Virginia district, we have firsthand evidence of how broadband access can improve the economic well-being and quality of life for rural residents. With federal funds, a fiber-optic backbone has been built, linking some of our most rural and financially unfortunate communities. Now technology-based employers are moving there because of the data transport that access to the fiber backbone provides. In the town of Lebanon, for example, 700 jobs in software engineering and data center management are powering a 21st-century economy.
