According to the Federal Communications Commission’s most recent data, 19 million Americans still lack access to broadband services. The U.S. has spent $7.2 billion in stimulus funds for broadband deployment, issued a National Broadband Plan and a National Broadband Map, and launched the Connect America Fund. So what’s wrong with this picture?

Join rural advocates for a discussion about how to change our federal and state policies to achieve universal broadband access. Learn how you can support the effort to encourage the full participation of rural residents in our nation’s culture, economy and democracy through improved broadband access.
