Abstract

Despite the widespread attention devoted to broadband and its anticipated impacts, surprisingly little is known regarding the linkages between broadband provision and establishment location. This is particularly true with respect to broadband speed. Given the understudied nature of this relationship, this study estimates econometric models to examine the linkages between broadband speed and firms using Ohio as a case study. Models results indicate broadband speed is most important to agricultural and rural firms. These findings provide case study support for policy and funding initiatives designed to improve the quality of broadband infrastructure in rural locations.
