FOSA applauded the enactment of “Dig Once” legislation designed to facilitate the deployment along U.S. highways of fiber optic cables for purposes of extending broadband and fiber optic sensing networks.
The Fiber to the Home Council and the Coalition for Local Internet Choice believe that local leaders should be empowered to make decisions about their communities’ critical infrastructure, including broadband.
Are you a city or county leader interested in leveraging the power of broadband to drive economic growth, increase access to education, healthcare and job opportunities, and improve the quality of life in your community? Are you seeking tools, assistance and support to expand local broadband connect
Connectivity is a path to greater opportunity. In today’s world, broadband and fluency with technology fuel economic growth, provide access to the world’s knowledge, promote skill development, and build stronger and more connected communities.
Communities need fiber, and there are a host of ways they can organize to make that happen. But the federal government needs to make sure it does not stand in the way.
