Satellite Internet Makes Rural Smart Homes A Reality
Thanks to advances in satellite internet technology and improvements to the smart devices themselves, it’s becoming increasingly realistic for folks who live outside of big cities or in more modest abodes to take advantage of smart services that can make their lives better.

By 2021,  more than a quarter of U.S. homes are projected to be “smart.”  That’s up from just 12.5 percent in 2016. While much of this change will undoubtedly happen in urban areas, rural residents will also begin to realize and adopt the benefits of  automated farming solutions energy management networks  and other systems that can have a major impact on life outside of cities.
