There is often nothing more important than "being connected," be it in your home or your business, your personal or your professional life. Current federal efforts to implement the Telecommunications Act of 1996 is threatening to leave many Americans without modern, affordable telephone service, according to a recent report written by McLean & Brown and published by the former "Center for The New West."
This Special Report is based on a series of Western Forums titled America's Growing Digital Divide, held from November 30th to December 10th, 1998 in Helena, Montana... Spokane, Washington...and Colorado Springs, Colorado. These forums all reflect the findings of the most recent recommendation on universal service by the Federal/State Joint Board on November 23, 1998: there is indeed a growing -- and alarming -- digital divide in America.
