Let’s Connect Michigan
Join us to close
the digital divide
Some communities in Michigan, especially in rural areas, don’t have access to high-speed internet.
Help is on the way! With an unprecedented level of federal funding for broadband from the bipartisan infrastructure law, closing the digital divide is now in the hands of each state – it’s time to connect the unconnected.
Sign the petition to help ensure your state leaders prioritize connecting communities without internet access, create assistance programs so every household can subscribe, and partner with reliable experienced cable broadband providers to ensure the job gets done.

Let’s Get the Job Done
Now that federal broadband funding is being disbursed, how do we ensure that states put these resources to good use and are successful at closing the digital divide?
By calling on them to:
Partner with reputable cable broadband providers that have built the networks that connect millions of homes across the country.
Prioritize projects that will expand broadband to areas without internet access, fund adoption and training programs, and protect against fraud, waste, and abuse of funding.
Support federal, state, and local assistance programs that provide all Americans with equitable access to the power of broadband.
