Information for Local Governments

The Gap Analysis page provides a dashboard to understand whether the great local needs for increasing access to broadband internet are related to service availability or user adoption.

Service Availability provides an interactive dashboard for identifying areas without internet service or very low speed service, as well as potential solutions and next steps.

User Adoption provides an interactive dashboard for identifying areas where users likely have access to broadband but may not own the technology or have a service subscription allowing them to use it. Additional solutions and next steps are also detailed.

Funding & Partnership Opportunities discusses known grant and loan programs targeting or directly tied to promoting broadband access as well as other creative ways to leverage existing or planned public infrastructure to support network expansion or enhancement.
