Disconnected: Broadband access lags in rural Georgia

In Georgia, at least 626,070 people live without access to broadband service, according to the Federal Communications Commission. But it’s probably closer to 1.6 million Georgians who lack access to adequate broadband, according to the state Department of Community Affairs, which is in the midst of a statewide mapping project. The agency’s initial work shows a patchwork of coverage that is particularly thin in parts of middle and South Georgia.
