Digital Divide

Digital Divide

Share

Too many Americans don’t have home broadband. With the future of education, work, and opportunity online, we are committed supporting efforts to close the digital divide and connect all Americans.

Not only is 5G improving communities across America, 5G for home broadband offers fast broadband speeds, robust and reliable connectivity, and can be quicker, easier, and cheaper to deploy than other approaches. 5G broadband is one of the most cost effective ways to help millions of Americans get the connectivity they need.

According to a Pew Research Center report, Americans want flexibility and options when it comes to deciding how to connect digitally. That means meeting Americans with broadband solutions that reflect their needs and how they use their broadband connections. And that means wireless.

Policy

Wireless is an important key to solving the digital divide, and policymakers can address this by enacting policy and investing in solutions that address accessibility and affordability gaps so we can ensure all Americans benefit from the 5G Economy.

What We Want

Broadband funding should be directed to unserved Americans, incentivize tech-neutral private broadband investment, and expand spectrum access.
