Microsoft’s Airband live in 25 states at midpoint of rural broadband project


Started in mid-2017, the Airband Initiative aims to eliminate the rural broadband gap and Microsoft said it’s on track to meet its target of expanding high-speed internet to 3 million Americans living in unserved areas by 2022.

“We’ve already reached a total of 633,000 previously unserved people, up from 24,000 people in 2018, and as our partners’ network deployments accelerate over the coming months, we will be reaching many more,” wrote Shelley McKinley, head of technology and corporate responsibility at Microsoft, in a blog post sharing an annual update on the project.
