With a population of over 326.5 million people, the United States of America is the world’s third most populous country. With fifty nation states, and a diverse geography and climate, the country is vast and ranks fourth in the world in terms of its size. It is the world’s most powerful nation state. The distribution of population consists of large urban clusters of people that are concentrated in rural areas such as Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Houston, Miami and Washington, DC. The geography of the United States is diverse, from mountain ranges such as the Rockies and the Appalachians to deserts in the southwest and dense forests in the north. The prairies are less densely populated and account for a great deal of agriculture in the country. The U.S. is a mixed economy with a great deal of natural resources. It is the largest producer of oil in the world and also has a solid mining and agricultural sector.
Connecting Remote Areas
Though a powerful country, there is still work to do in terms of connecting the American population. In 2016, Internet penetration stood at 76.18%. The country’s mobile networks are currently undergoing upgrade and expansion. WIth demand for mobile data on a growth path across the country, LTE networks are being rolled out. There is high smartphone penetration. A heavy focus is being placed on 5G, and trials are currently ongoing with a race underway for providers to launch the first services which are expected at the end of 2018. However, the challenge for the broadband market is to reach rural areas.
In a 2015 FCC report, it was confirmed that 55 million Americans (17% of the population) lacked access to advanced broadband and that a significant Digital Divide exists between urban and rural America with over half of all Americans lacking access to 25Mbps/3Mbps service. The report also found that 35% of schools lacked access to fibre networks that can support the digital learning tools of today.
