WASHINGTON - Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has announced loans to help finance the construction of broadband networks in rural Iowa, Minnesota, Oregon and South Dakota.

In Iowa, Keystone-Farmers Cooperative Telephone Company will receive a $7.6 million loan to upgrade its plant and complete a Fiber-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network to help meet the current and future data needs of its customers in Tama and Benton counties.

"Rural Americans need full access high-speed telecommunications services," Vilsack said. "Broadband allows rural communities to tap into critical health care and social services systems."
