Abstract
There is a wide rural-urban gap in broadband Internet service, which can be mostly attributed to the high last-mile costs in low-density rural areas. The purpose of this project is to introduce a new revenue stream for rural broadband ISPs, and hence to improve the commercial viability of providing broadband service in rural areas.
