Definition: rural Internet


Accessing the Internet in the countryside and farm counties. Rural Internet often relies on satellite and telephone service (DSL and dial-up) because cable and FiOS are not available. Due to the greater distance between potential customers, the cable companies and Verizon (FiOS) have not found it cost effective to lay cables in many areas. See broadband and ISP.
