Broadband Service In Kansas | Waxahatchee
What's keeping parts of Kansas from getting good internet service, and Waxahatchee on post-pandemic touring and her latest album.
Segment 1, beginning at 1:00: Using the internet was an integral part of making it through the pandemic, however, many in Kansas still lack a reliable connection.
For as many as 173,000 Kansans, the lack of good broadband internet causing trouble with working remotely, virtual classes and telehealth appointments was highlighted by the pandemic. Fixing a problem that some Kansans have endured for years comes down to more then just running cable to where service is needed.
