Creating an Affordability Agenda

Jon Speaking at the Bipartisan Tech Conference

To meet the challenge of providing fixed broadband at roughly $10 per month requires implementation of a variety of strategies. Here are seven ways governments can tackle the affordability challenge:

  1. Spur Competition
  2. Protect and Strengthen the Lifeline Program
  3. Provide Assistance to Broadband Providers’ Low-Income Programs
  4. Require Affordable Tiers of Broadband Service When Supporting Deployment
  5. Educate and Protect Consumers
  6. Support Programs That Make Low-Cost Computing Devices Available
  7. Provide Access Via Community Anchor Institutions
