A much-hyped network upgrade called “5G” means different things to different people. To industry proponents, it’s the next huge innovation in wireless internet. To the U.S. government, it’s the backbone technology of a future that America will wrestle with China to control. To many average people, it’s simply a mystery. (Apple via AP)

The strategy of broadband expansion is one of the topics that will be addressed in the next legislative session that begins in January. Missouri 2nd District Representative J Eggleston says free market forces have been slow to build up the access of broadband to rural Missouri.

There have been committees set up that could provide some input when the topic gets addressed during the 2022 legislative session.
