June 16, 2023 – America’s economy is more competitive and globally interconnected than ever. And advanced Internet technology is a massive part of decades of worldwide economic growth.
In recent years, small towns and cities, especially rural areas, have been particularly underserved and sometimes even left behind in the new global economy. Thanks to investments in Fiber Internet, however, that’s quickly changing.
At Clearwave Fiber, we’re proud to deliver the fast and reliable Internet service only Fiber can provide. And we’re even more proud of how our service is helping invest in our community.
Fiber is future-proof because it’s comprised of materials to keep up with technological advances and increasing bandwidth capacity and speeds; Fiber is an investment that will yield dividends for our community for decades to come.
Below we discuss four fundamental ways that our Fiber Internet invests in our community’s future – and the next generation.
Fiber Helps You Work and Live Where You Love
Without high-speed Internet, small-town America would be left behind. Small businesses and farms could not compete, and families were missing out on many essential benefits of faster, more reliable Internet, like streaming entertainment or video calls with loved ones.
The expansion of Fiber Internet infrastructure is altering the landscape, putting small-town America on a level playing field with more densely populated regions. Fiber Internet also allows smaller communities to bring in new businesses and investment, attracting well-educated and highly skilled younger people who previously departed for larger cities.
With Fiber, you and your family are far less likely to be forced to choose between staying in your hometown or taking a great job opportunity hundreds or thousands of miles away. Fiber Internet technology doesn’t just help you stay connected to other people – it’s also helping you stay in your community and keep the ones you love closer.
Remote Work and Relocation Fuels Job and Economic Growth
Online and Internet-based jobs are no longer “the careers of the future” – they are the jobs of the present.
Recent estimates indicate that between a quarter and a third of all workers now work at least a substantial amount of their regular hours remotely. Clearwave Fiber’s network is helping to fuel the remote working trend – and helping attract new workers to our community.
Relocation – or “recruiting” remote workers away from major cities and to smaller and often more scenic, relaxed regions, is another significant trend in American life. And relocation, made possible by Fiber Internet, can be an engine to power sustainable economic growth to help our community thrive.
Today’s workforce depends on fast, reliable Internet. Fiber Internet draws talent to our small communities to work their jobs from home or even the local coffee shop. Fiber Internet helps keep our families together and attracts new people into our community. As a result, the local economy is boosted, from restaurants and shops to other small businesses and service providers.
Improved Schools and Educational Benefits
Today’s schools go well beyond chalkboards and desks. Resource-rich curriculums bring a swath of learning materials from all over the world into the classroom via the Internet.
Fiber’s reliable Internet means teachers can easily access and share resources with their students, greatly enriching the learning environment and improving educational outcomes for our children. By bringing these critical educational materials and tools to our schools, Fiber Internet makes perhaps its most crucial – and longest lasting – investment in our community.
Fiber Enhances Farms and Keeps Agri-Businesses Competitive
Farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural-related businesses also benefit from access to Fiber Internet. From up-to-the-minute weather information to soil and moisture data and access to global markets, Fiber helps small farms and rural communities thrive.
Fiber improves connections to governmental and regulatory agencies, speeding up permitting, insurance claims, and more. Modern tech, powered by Fiber, can vastly improve efficiencies for both livestock and agricultural farms – bringing more profit and stability to farming families. Plus, the easier access to online knowledge and resources ensures our local farmers don’t fall behind competitors in other towns.
The above are just four ways Clearwave Fiber is investing in our community and the next generation. Whether helping to grow our economy, grow young minds, or grow agricultural products, Clearwave Fiber’s high-speed, reliable Fiber Internet will sustain them all.
