Despite Army’s technology advances, some troops still struggle with internet access (Leo Shane III, Defense News)

Amid all the cutting-edge technology on display at the Association of the U.S. Army’s annual meeting in Washington, D.C., military officials on Tuesday offered a reminder that many soldiers and their families still lack reliable internet access and other tech basics.

“Many active-duty [soldiers] and including those in our Guard and Reserve component live in areas of the country where bandwidth is still quite expensive,” said Capt. Kimberly Elenberg, director of joint force fitness for the undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness. “So while we have amazing tools to leverage technology to connect with our families, we also still have to remember it is not universally accessible or affordable, and we have to be open to multiple means of staying connected.”
