Connecting Communities with High-Performance Broadband

Jon Sallet

Jon's speech at AnchorNETS: 9th Annual SHLB Conference on October 17, 2019. 

Based on what we’ve learned, we’ve formulated three basic principles for community anchor institution broadband policy.

  • First, community anchor institutions need access to competitively-priced, High-Performance Broadband, and they deserve the discretion to make informed choices about what best serves their communities.
  • Second, broadband is needed to connect community anchor institutions with their users wherever they may be.
  • Third, community anchor institutions can serve as launching pads for communitywide broadband access and, in places where broadband has already been deployed, more broadband competition.
