The White House just made a BIG announcement – all 50 states now know how much federal broadband funding they will be awarded to expand high-speed internet access. 8.3 million U.S. homes and businesses are not able to access high-speed internet – or the many benefits that come with a connection. This new announcement of federal broadband funding provides states with the ability to achieve a fully connected America.
We are now one step closer to closing America’s digital divide. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) just released an updated version of its national broadband map, providing a clearer picture of where high-speed internet service is – and is not – available.
The COVID-19 public health emergency has officially expired - signaling a new chapter and bringing about many changes. One thing that will remain the same? The importance of a reliable, high-speed internet connection.
