Cell phone reception in rural areas in the US

This editorial makes the case of why building infrastructure in terms of cell phone connectivity is essential in rural areas, such as the Olympia Peninsula in Washington state. Written by James Peters, chairman of the Squaxin Island Tribe in Mason County.

In addition, ensuring the expansion of wireless networks in rural Washington narrows the technology gap between rural and urban areas.
