Congressman Denver Riggleman says the Fifth District is still struggling to expand broadband access in rural neighborhoods. He’s making a push to the federal government to move things along.

The Virginia Republican Representative wrote this month to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Riggleman says he thinks part of the problem is that the FCC is not accurately measuring how many people lack high-speed Internet. He’s pushing for more partnerships between the government and the private sector to accelerate broadband options.
