LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Senator Mark Pryor spoke on the significance of internet in the community Monday as part of his efforts to expand broadband services for families and businesses.
Pryor said he wants to make sure that Arkansas does not get left behind in the technology world.
"If we're not careful, what can happen is the tale of two Americas. You'll have urban and suburban American, which will have the latest and the greatest of everything, and then rural America will be left behind with second or third rate technology. We don't want that to happen," he explained.
Pryor said its important Congress doesn't stifle competition between companies because competition breeds innovation, and it's the competitive factor that works in the consumer's favor.
