Broadband availability

4 years ago

First of all, this topic could be on more than one forum, this one and electronics. I chose this one because when I searched for this topic, it was the one with the most hits. It also includes cellular telephones.

When people, including politicians, speak of broadband coverage, it is never clear to me what they mean. Wired, meaning fiber optic (e.g. Fios), cable, or dsl. Wireless, meaning cellular, but is there any other kind? WiFi, which is locally connected to a wired connection (or a cellular connection). Several states have been talking about state-wide connectivity, but I don't think how that is possible. Any ideas/comments? Oh, then there is satellite (Hughes?).
