Summary "The United States Department of Transportation, working with the U.S. Department of Commerce and with State and local agencies, investigated the prospects for deploying high-speed telecommunications (HST) in three largely rural interstate highway corridors: Interstate Route 90 through South Dakota, northern Iowa, southern Minnesota, and central and western Wisconsin; Interstate Route 20 through northern Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama; and Interstate Route 91 through Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. Analysis of the corridors was accomplished using geographic information systems (GIS) technology to organize data on demographic, socioeconomic, and other characteristics. State and local stakeholders were consulted regarding telecommunications initiatives, opportunities, and policies in the corridors. Potential benefits of broadband access were assessed using available information on the impacts of high-speed telecommunications access, along with an assessment of the telecommunications needs of residents and business, educational, health industry, and governmental entities in the corridors."--p.
