Press release: US can address pressing broadband needs with proposed infrastructure funds, report shows
ACA Connects and Cartesian develop detailed analyses to help policymakers prioritize broadband infrastructure funding
Via ACA Connects - 10 June 2021 - A new report from ACA Connects and business consulting firm Cartesian shows that policymakers can make gigabit broadband available to 19 million locations that lack access to high-quality service and subsidize broadband adoption for five years with funding under consideration by President Biden and the U.S. Congress.
The report, Addressing Gaps in Broadband Infrastructure Availability and Service Adoption: A Cost Estimation & Prioritization Framework, uses the most recent and comprehensive deployment data available and provides a rigorous analytical cost model and framework to assist policymakers in determining how to expand broadband availability and increase broadband adoption across the United States based upon various definitions of success.
