Broadband as Civic Infrastructure
"...initiatives to enhance digital equity that, while spurred in many cases by the pandemic, are part of a longer arc by which communities have sought to seize control of their digital futures.
We argue that future policy should strengthen the federal government's role in financing broadband for public purposes, ensure that states have capacity for broadband planning, and build local capabilities for digital skills training & tech support."-John Horrigan
