Equitable Broadband Solutions
Closing the Digital Divide with Broadband Solutions
Helping to provide broadband to everyone is a commitment to closing the digital divide. Broadband is essential for vital services and opportunities, but millions of citizens still lack adequate broadband service or the devices and skills to use it.
We have a deep-rooted understanding of the telecommunications industry, information technology, public policy, and strategic planning. Our goal is to assist state and regional programs and ISPs in addressing the challenges of unserved and underserved communities for broadband connectivity in your jurisdiction.
Access to affordable and reliable broadband can transform the lives of all citizens. It is key to creating equity and impacts in:
- Economic Development
- Public Safety
- Workforce Development
The pandemic deepened the U.S.’s digital divide — a lack of available broadband or issues related to a lack of affordability, devices, or digital skills. Many citizens still do not have the access they need for full-service healthcare, education, and employment.

Capitalizing on Existing Broadband Opportunities
When the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act was signed into law — among the many designations, was the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program. This expansive grant program, administered by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) appropriates $42.45 billion for states and territories to utilize for broadband deployment, mapping, and adoption projects.
