If you live in Montana, you know there are a lot of services we don’t always have access to. This is especially true for those of us who either grew up or currently live in rural Montana.
Fortunately for us, Montana U.S. Sen. Jon Tester continues to push to connect rural communities to the rest of America.
Tester took on Verizon earlier and got them to reverse course when they threatened to drop people and cancel contracts all across Montana. He’s continuing to push for more access by demanding the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s loan program identify barriers that keep them from approving more loans to expand broadband and high-speed internet access.
We always hear a lot of talk from politicians about standing up for the average American. But Tester works every day to turn those words into action. He knows these services are more than just better phone calls. It means our businesses can thrive in our small towns and our emergencies will be a little less scary knowing we won’t have to worry about our 911 calls being dropped or delayed. Tester has proven himself as a champion for rural American in the U.S. Senate.
