How to bring high-speed Internet to America

That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

It’s one of the most famous phrases in the English language, and it was relayed live from the moon via a radio system that a man named Dean Cubely used to manage. These days, Cubely works as CEO of ERF Wireless, and still uses radio waves hopscotched over short to medium distances. His mission? To bring high-speed wireless Internet to places that wires or fiber optic cables can’t reach. 

Cubely joined Marketplace Tech host David Brancaccio to share his vision for a fully connected America.
