What's The Value Of Fast Rural Internet? Tuesday At 7 p.m. On KZYX Mendocino Works!

What’s the value of affordable high-speed internet for rural communities? And what’s the social and economic downside for places that lack accessible broadband?

On Tuesday September 11th at 7 p.m., Mendocino Works will explore the impact of affordable, sustainable broadband here in rural Mendocino county with UC Berkeley associate professor Jenna Burrell, who is studying rural internet in Mendocino county, and Yahel Ben-David, a UC Berkeley networking entrepreneur who has been expanding the non-profit Further Reach wireless internet service up the Mendocino Coast and into Anderson Valley.

We'll be asking Professor Burrell about the findings in her recent paper, "The Value of the Internet to Rural Populations: A Case Study from Mendocino County, CA." 

That’s Mendocino Works in its new time slot, Tuesday at 7 p.m., here on KZYX.
