Some areas still have no internet access at all while others have it but it is either slow or unreliable. However, as the state went into lockdown last March and people began working from home; using more telemedicine; home schooling and trying to stay connected to loved ones; those issues were exacerbated and underscored. The need to fix them became more urgent.
