Evaluating the impact of broadband access and internet use in a small underserved rural community

| 0

This paper was written by Casey Canfield and her collaborators who are part of the UM System Broadband Initiative.

The highlights include:

  • Change in employment, education and health internet use was unrelated to service quality.
  • Measurement challenges affect evaluations of interventions in underserved communities.
  • Future studies should consider appropriate outcomes, recruitment, and survey timing.
