The White House Promotes Community Broadband
The White House released a report last week that promotes the vital need for strong broadband in our homes, businesses and communities. In this report, an initiative called BroadbandUSA was introduced. The Department of Commerce is launching this initiative that will offer "online and in-person technical assistance to communities; host a series of regional workshops around the country; and publish guides and tools that provide communities with proven solutions to address problems in broadband infrastructure planning, financing, construction, and operations across many types of business models."
