Utah's 4th district covers parts of Salt Lake, Utah, Juab, and Sanpete counties. Representing both urban and rural interests.

Chad Booth and Congressman Matheson discussed a broad range of issues including: Medicaid Expansion,  Utah's air Quality, and even transfer of public lands.

From time to time we find it interesting to look at local issues from a national perspective by talking to our representatives from Washington. Congressman Matheson shared some down to earth perspective on local issues that I hope you will find interesting.

Connecting Rural Utah to Broadband

 

A connection to the internet has become a necessity of life for many of us. That access allows people to connect their ideas, products, and services but requires infrastructure that can be challenging to install in the more rural areas of the state, prompting the question: What is needed to bring broadband to rural Utah.  

 

The Utah Broadband Project was established in 2011 to map available services and plan for future expansion of services. The goal of expanding the availability of broadband internet service is to create a level playing field for communities and businesses across the state.  

 

The County Seat attended a recent conference in Delta, Utah that discussed the benefits and potential hurdles to expanding broadband internet coverage in rural communities across the state. Link to the program here:
