Trump's infrastructure proposal includes rural broadband expansion

In a speech this week given at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. President Trump said that his upcoming infrastructure plan will include expanded broadband mg access in rural areas. "I will be including a provision in our infrastructure proposal -$1 trillion proposal, you'll be seeing it very shortly -to promote and foster, enhance broadband access for rural America," he said.
