Precision farming, sustainable agriculture, carbon reduction practices, all require reliable broadband internet.
“Consumers who want well-sourced, sustainable food and a story behind it have little understanding what any of this technology means, or does, or even exists.”
“But if consumers knew about it, even a little bit, they might start realizing the need for better rural internet.”
“Consumers who want to reduce the carbon intensity of their food should advocate for better rural internet.”
