President Donald Trump announced that he would be taking the first step to bring broadband Internet access to rural America during a speech at the Farm Bureau convention in Tennessee on Monday.

“Last April, I commissioned a task force to meet with farmers and local communities to find the greatest barriers to rural prosperity,” Trump said.

About 23.4 million Americans currently live in rural areas that lack the infrastructure for broadband technology.

“That is why today, in a few minutes, I will take the first step to expand access to broadband Internet in rural America so you can compete on a level playing field,” Trump concluded. “I will sign two presidential orders to provide broader and faster and better Internet coverage.”
