Montana Senator Jon Tester says pandemic has shown big need for better broadband


Broadband in rural states like Montana already lags behind the rest of the country, and especially the rest of the world. And the stay-at-home directives of recent weeks are showing those shortcomings.

“And I speak to it from personal experience,” Sen. Jon Tester said. “You know, the farm you’ve got to be standing in the right corner of the house having your mouth in the right position in order to get cell service out there. And some people aren’t even that fortunate. They don’t have cell service at all. We’ve got some work to do on high speed Internet, broadband, cell service. They’re all connected.”
