Fact sheet by Johnathan Hladik, policy director
 

 

Connectivity is the defining aspect of our 21st century economy. Access to broadband internet in all corners of Nebraska is essential for rural economic development. Unfortunately, an inaccurate method of reporting and mapping access to broadband services has led to thousands of Nebraska’s rural households being left behind. Improved mapping is the most important step we can take to make broadband available to all Nebraskans.
