Battling to bring broadband to rural America.
Two years ago, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella emailed a new mission statement to employees. Their job, he wrote, is “to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.” That empowerment mission includes lobbying the government to free up broadcast spectrum to bring Internet access to the 24 million Americans who don’t have it. The endgame: Microsoft wants more people to benefit from software (including its own) that’s out of reach if they can’t access the cloud.
