Investment in the Expansion of Broadband Infrastructure
In metropolitan areas many already enjoyed the benefits of a truly high-speed broadband connection. Others, because neighborhood networks were already in place, were able to upgrade with a simple request to a local service provider.
But for millions of Americans that live in rural, unserved or underserved areas, such connections remain elusive. The Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) and the Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) fund are the federal government’s response to this need.
60 Million Rural Americans Can’t Access Broadband
$20+ Billion to Build Rural Broadband Networks
The Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) Program provides over $42B to expand high-speed internet access to unserved and underserved communities across all 50 U.S. states as well as many of its territories.
High-Speed Internet Access
As experienced network designers and engineers know, there is no “one size fits all” technology. It is expected that copper, wireless and even satellite will find application in specific use cases however, the technology of choice will certainly be fiber optics.
