AN ALLIANCE TO BRIDGE THE DIGITAL DIVIDE
Every American deserves access to high-speed internet. We’re a new coalition formed to make that vision a reality. We bring together people from across the country to:
• Shine a light on the barriers to internet access
• Show the solutions to expand access to more homes and businesses
• Shift the national conversation to enact those solutions – soon
We’re focused on helping the millions of Americans who still don’t have access to reliable, high-speed internet and those who either can’t afford it or don’t yet have the skills or technology to put it to use. They’re overwhelmingly in rural areas, where as many as one in four families lack a reliable connection. We’re not committed to any particular political party or technology.
Our agenda is simple: connect more Americans and do it quickly. We are here to make a change.
A FUTURE OF OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL
The internet is more important than ever. Education, small businesses, health care, agriculture – it affects an ever-bigger share of the economy and daily life. By bringing high-speed broadband access to more people, we’ll empower them to find the opportunities they need to thrive in the 21st century.
We envision a world in which students get the education they need through distance learning, farmers get to use cutting-edge precision technology, veterans get quality care with telemedicine, entrepreneurs get to build innovative businesses online, and families get the best shot at the best life, whether in rural, suburban, or urban areas of the country. That’s why we’re striving to get high-speed internet into unserved homes and businesses across America.
OPENING DOORS TO INVESTMENT AND INNOVATION
The benefits of high-speed internet are undeniable. But a series of barriers are standing in the way of expanding access in many areas. Whether financial, legal, regulatory, technological, or commercial, we’re determined to overcome the obstacles holding us back.
We know the macro problems – and how to craft policies that will result in increased private investment in infrastructure. We know the micro problems – like the delays and expenses that can be seen from the process of attaching to utility poles in rural areas. And we’re calling for common-sense solutions that will make these problems a thing of the past. Whether at the federal, state, or local level, our diverse coalition is turning advocacy into action to expand high-speed internet access and the opportunity that follows.
THE TIME IS NOW – AND WE NEED YOU
Do you want to connect Americans to the future? Do you want to strengthen our economy, expand opportunity, and usher in a better future for all? If so, we want you to stand with us. The more leaders who get involved, the more we will accomplish, and the more good we’ll do for the American people and America itself.
