Maximizing BEAD: The Roadmap to Digital Inclusion and Internet for All
In the digital transformation era, internet access is no longer a “nice-to-have” bonus – it’s ingrained in our daily lives. The path toward digital inclusion starts with digital accessibility – extending reliable, affordable access to high-speed internet opportunities and bridging the digital divide.
The recently introduced federal funding – Broadband, Equity, Access, and Deployment program(BEAD) – represents a historic step toward providing broadband access to the entire country. Reliable broadband services, virtual schooling, telemedicine, and government services can all be at our fingertips, but connectivity barriers still persist and can hinder this much-needed relief.
