Broadband is an essential infrastructure for residents, businesses, institutions, and communities to participate in a global digital economy. Broadband isn’t a new topic of discussion, and while much of the densely populated areas of the country enjoy quality wired and wireless connectivity, the United States still lags behind much of the developed world in broadband penetration, speed, and adoption in rural areas. While those without access to broadband infrastructure are unable to enjoy its many benefits, current research suggests the United States also has a broadband adoption and use problem. To benefit from broadband and related technologies, a community must take a comprehensive planning approach and address access, adoption, and use simultaneously. Communities across the country are taking part in local broadband and technology planning efforts, and technology planning closely follows the format of traditional planning. Stakeholders are gathering to assess the local technology landscape, gathering input from the public, identifying gaps, creating action plans, and implementing projects to increase technology access, adoption, and use with great success. This session will make the case for local broadband planning and provide a model for engaging local stakeholders, and deliver information and examples for how to begin broadband and technology planning in your community.
