The Federal Communications Commission Thursday proposed new rules for allocating $400 million to improve Internet connectivity in rural health providers.

If the rules are approved, more rural doctors, nurses and public and non-profit hospitals and clinics would be eligible to receive shares of the funds, so that advanced healthcare could be provided to patients no matter where they live, the FCC said in a statement.
