Broadband and Health

Did you know that there’s a link between access to high-speed internet and chronic disease and preventable hospitalization? Access to information via broadband reduces both and when high-speed internet isn’t available it goes up.

So tells us a new interactive map by the FCC. You can explore the availability of broadband on one tab, health issues on another, demographics on a third and an overview on a fourth. Learn how to use the map and then zoom in by state, county and rural.
