High Speed Internet Connection in Rural Duvall, WA areas
High Speed internet has not been available to many rural Duvall residents for many years. Very few alternative options are available, and cost an average of $400 a month for a slow connection. Click the link below for a screenshot of my speed test.
A big percentage of the Duvall population are small business owners or work in the technology industry. The issue of not having a high speed internet connection at affordable price has made it very challenging for the Duvall residents, and taking on greater economic significance.
More so, Duvall students without Internet access at home may struggle to keep up with school assignments.
As a Real Estate Agent, I know that not having high-speed internet access can affect home prices. A nationwide study released by researchers at the University of Colorado and Carnegie Mellon University finds fiber-optic connections, the fastest type of high speed Internet available, can add $5,437 to the price of a $175,000 home—about as much as a fireplace, or half the value of a bathroom.
