Abstract:

AMERICA HAS ENTERED AN INFORMATION AGE WHERE ACCESS TO TIMELY INFORMATION HAS BECOME CRITICAL. TELECOMMUNICATION IS FAST BECOMING AN ALTERNATIVE TO TRANSPORTATION AS A MEANS TO ACCESS INFORMATION AND OBTAIN SERVICES. WHILE MANY DATA BASES OF AGRICULTURAL INFORMATION HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED, LITTLE RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE REGARDING THE DELIVERY SYSTEMS NEEDED TO ACCESS SUCH INFORMATION. THIS PROJECT WILL EVALUATE THE STATE OF THE ART OF TELECOMMUNICATION DELIVERY SYSTEMS TO MEET INFORMATION AGE COMMUNICATION NEEDS IN RURAL AMERICA. A REPRESENTATIVE SAMPLE OF 200 RURAL TELEPHONE COMPANIES WILL BE SURVEYED REGARDING THEIR PRESENT TECHNOLOGICAL CAPABILITIES USAGE OF PARTY LINES AND PLANS FOR FUTURE IMPROVEMENT. AN ANALYSIS OF ALTERNATIVE TECHNOLOGIES SUCH AS DIRECT BROADCAST SATELLITE, DIGITAL ELECTRONIC MESSAGE SERVICE AND CABLE TELEVISION WILL BE PERFORMED.
