Abstract

This article examines the creation of public enterprises as a form of economic development for rural American communities. These public enterprises have a beneficial economic development role to play when there is a private sector failure to deliver high-qualify, low-cost services in critical economic areas. The study examines Iowa's advanced telecommunications services in rural areas. Some rural areas perceive themselves to be well served by the private sector; but others perceive themselves to be woefully underserved. When rural Iowa communities believed themselves to be deprived of market-based services, they created public enterprise telecommunications utilities. Factors necessary for high-quality public enterprise telecommunication system success (as well as those leading to failure) are discussed. Also discussed are trends showing the importance of the new public enterprise telecommunications utilities.
