Get The Facts
Communities across the country recognize the importance of broadband networks to support their future viability. They also recognize the amount of Government funding that is available to help them reach their goals.
To future-proof digital infrastructure and set yourself up for success you need to get the facts.
Internet access plays a crucial role in the lives of everyone worldwide. So much so that there is debate as to whether it should be considered a basic human right. Regardless, the current lack of digital equity, particularly in the US where access to technology is surprisingly limited in many areas, makes accomplishing this difficult.
