Microsoft Expanding Broadband Program To Include Oklahoma
TULSA, Oklahoma - More access to internet service is on the way for people in rural Oklahoma.
On Tuesday, Microsoft announced it is expanding its Airband Initiative into Oklahoma, and four other states. According to experts, 54% of rural communities in Oklahoma still don't have broadband access.
“While we’ve made significant progress, we know there’s a lot more to do to bring broadband to every American. That’s why we are raising our ambition as a company and encourage the federal, state and local governments to do the same,” said Microsoft President Brad Smith.
Microsoft says they are partnering with internet service providers and combing new technologies to bridge that gap.
