Rural America Radio addresses technology and current affairs issues pertaining to rural communities across the US. Our focus in 2009-2010 is" Broadband for Rural Areas". In today's show we interview Craig Settles, an expert in broadband expansion through local governments and municipalities. He currently leads Successful.com, in addition to serving on RuMBA’s advisory board. Mr. Settles’s consultancy helps to provide needs assessments, business strategy to improve local government efficiency, economic development, and the quality of life of communities across unserved and underserved areas in the US. Rural America Radio features different topics of human interest, including agriculture, in remote and rural areas. Talkshow is hosted by Luisa Handem Piette, the Managing Director of RuMBA USA -- the Rural Mobile & Broadband Alliance. Rural America Radio is produced in collaboration with RuMBA USA and its members. Listeners are encouraged to send their questions by e-mail to luisahandem@rumbausa.com, or to call the guest line at 646- 378-1746. The Obama administration has set aside over $7bn for deployment and adoption of high-speed Internet in rural areas, and we would like to keep you informed about progress in allocating funds to our neighbors in underserved and unserved communities. Rural America Radio is an upbeat and exciting show designed to stimulate discussion about the socio-economic development of rural America.
