CEO Adelstein Underscores Need for Wireless Broadband on the Farm

October 10, 2014 / Alexandria, VA – In a commentary for the Farm Industry News, Jonathan Adelstein, President & CEO of PCIA – The Wireless Infrastructure Association underscores the need for the U.S. to build next-generation wireless infrastructure in order to bridge the wireless gap, meeting the unprecedented demand for data use–because rural Americans deserve the same connectivity as their more urban counterparts.

The commentary begins, “As a native South Dakotan who’s devoted much of my career to strengthening rural America, I’ve seen my share of farm equipment. So I’ve been delighted twice this year to observe John Deere’s latest machinery in action.

Deere’s new machines are sleeker – and less bumpy – than the ones I was around as a kid. And there’s one other big difference: The ‘Internet of Things’ now includes ‘Farm Things.’ All of which explains why John Deere is an active member of my organization, PCIA – The Wireless Infrastructure Association.”
