About this series

Missouri has an internet problem — and rural Missourians are disproportionately facing the brunt of the impact.

Missouri ranks comparatively low in both connectivity and broadband speed in the United States, putting rural Missourians behind their urban counterparts, and Missouri as a whole behind other states.

A special project by the Columbia Missourian has found that lack of reliable access to the internet manifests itself in ways that touch on nearly every aspect of life.

In this week’s Missourian, you’ll find stories about the struggle for businesses when internet is unreliable, the need for internet for farmers to stay competitive, the value of internet service for telehealth services and the impact of low connectivity in rural school districts. Find the project online at bit.ly/moruralbroadband.
