What California's groundbreaking open middle mile initiative means for libraries and states everywhere.


Guiding principles as a framework for middle-mile implementation:

  • Provide affordable, open-access, middle-mile broadband infrastructure to enable last-mile network connectivity throughout the state.

  • Build the network expeditiously, leveraging existing infrastructure, networks, and construction projects, where feasible.

  • Prioritize connectivity to unserved and underserved communities, including community institutions.
