The town of Shenandoah is building its own wireless broadband network.
When it's complete, residents and businesses will be able to access the Internet from anywhere in town, using a box.
Town officials say police and rescue workers stand to benefit the most.
"The whole country is moving towards this. In 10 years, this isn't going to be an issue because everyone is going to have it," says Kimberly Alexander, Director of Economic Development for the town of Shenandoah.
The network is one of the first of its kind in the state.
It's being funded by a $643,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
