Getting the broadband to the rural communities is a great first step. In could be copper wire, fios or cable. After it's in the area then cheap, wireless (WIFI) repeaters and gateways can be added to extend the network. The big money is needed only for the first connection to the local area. After that folks can set up inexpensive wireless mesh networks to take it the rest of the way. One vendor of wireless repeaters, Meraki, is doing this all over the country now.
