Building Blocks for a National Broadband Agenda

Jon Sallet

Jon's speech at the Broadband Communities Conference on October 30, 2019. 

How does policy help us reach our broadband goal? Policymakers should use these four building blocks to create and further broadband policy.

  • Deployment of networks where adequate broadband does not exist;
  • Competition increases choices and spurs lower prices and better-quality service;
  • Affordability and Adoption for those who lack the means or the skills to use broadband; and
  • Community Anchor Institutions, such as schools and libraries, increasingly serve their users wherever those users are.
