Uniting government, industry and academia to close the digital divide

Are you passionate about closing the digital divide and bringing high-speed internet to every household in America?

The federal government has allocated over $100 billion in funds to support this ambitious goal. However, there is currently a significant shortage of qualified workers in the broadband industry, with over 200,000 positions left unfilled.

We're calling on all stakeholders from government, industry and academia to join us in this important mission to enhance the lives of our fellow citizens and propel our nation to fully utilize the power of broadband.
