Seizing this historic moment to close the broadband access gap
In this workshop, we heard from those leading broadband efforts on the state level in Illinois and Ohio and from a panel of heartland mayors working to close the digital divide in their communities.
- This is the moment for communities to lean in and drive the process of solving their local connectivity gaps.
- The need for coordination between all levels of government as well as private and non-profit sector stakeholders has never been greater.
- Building infrastructure alone will not close the digital divide. Investments in affordability and adoption must go hand-in-hand with expanding availability.
