Summit to examine closing the broadband gap

January 21, 2013

Approaches to closing the broadband gap will be among the agenda items when the Federal-State Joint Conference on Advanced Services and the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications Information Administration (NTIA) hold a daylong seminar Feb. 7 in the FCC Commission Room.

The aim of the gathering is to identify and discuss best practices learned from broadband-adoption programs and academic studies/surveys, and how implementation of these best practices can close the broadband adoption gap among Americans. There will be a particular emphasis on closing the gap for low-income households, minorities, seniors, rural residents, those in Tribal lands and people with disabilities.
