High Speed Internet a Success in Rural Yavapai County


Folks in rural areas of Yavapai County appear satisfied with their new high-speed internet service. According to a release from Cox Communications, a survey the company sent out stated 86% of residents with recently available high-speed internet in previously underserved communities say the service has improved their lives. Areas where the new internet service has been set up include Black Canyon City and Congress.

Yavapai County Schools Superintendent Tim Carter said, “With strong, reliable access to high-speed internet service, our educational, workforce, and economic activities will grow and improve significantly. We believe our residents will have easier access to education, be more likely to own a home-based business, be healthier as they engage in telehealth, and have faster and easier access to apply for jobs and benefits and access information.”
