Broadband connectivity provides education of every level, it enables people to run a business from everywhere and to share their life with others. Online we can find support and we can provide our own experience. Through the availability of internet this planet will become a better place, especially in regions where some minorities are suppressed: broadband gives them a voice.

Access to others is key to development. As someone who was involved in helping bring basic internet access to remote counties in northern Michigan, I know the challenges. That said, technology changes exponentially and this project may be a vehicle that revolutionizes - improves - communication avenues for all of us.
