Consumers mostly used dial-up networks to access the Internet as recently as the mid-1990s. A screaming-fast modem might have synced up at 28.8 or 33.6 kbps. Surfing the Web meant waiting a minute or more for a basic Web page to open -- and forget about sharing images or video. The good news, however, was that that the Internet was a relatively safe community back then, with firewalls and intrusion-prevention systems not yet even part of the common IT lexicon. Fast forward 15 years to the era of data sharing over fast broadband Internet connections.

Really great article, thank you. Secure file transfer technology so important to avoiding ad hoc data breaches. We actually implements Biscom's MFT product with great success.

How urgent is the need to provide broadband services for rural U.S. communities?
It's critical to the entire economy, and everyone should share the cost.
If rural residents really want high-speed Internet, they should foot the bill.
Internet providers will benefit -- they should build out their own networks.
The government should ensure that everyone is connected, but broadband isn't necessary.
People who choose to live off the grid do so for a reason -- leave them alone.
Providers should improve broadband services in heavily populated areas first.
