Would more wireless towers benefit rural areas?

Would more wireless towers benefit rural areas?”

"I commend President Trump for doing what he can through executive action to cut the red tape that serves as a roadblock to broadband buildout in our rural communities", Manchin said.

President Donald Trump has signed an executive order aimed at providing better access to broadband internet services in rural locations across the U.S. Closing the broadband gap could mean a more connected country, with more people on the internet and able to rely on internet-dependent devices. "Currently, too many American citizens and businesses still lack access to this basic tool of modern economic connectivity". It would open a new market for ISPs and may be easier for advertisers to reach these audiences.

While this plan will help those that live in especially remote areas, some rural families say the extra towers aren't necessary.

The executive order directs federal agencies to "enable sustainable rural broadband infrastructure projects" by reducing barriers to capital investment, removing obstacles to broadband services, as well as streamlining and expediting the processing and review of requests to locate broadband facilities on federal property.

"Those towers are going to go up, and you're going to have great, great broadband", Trump told the almost 5,000 people present at the signing.
