The State of Nevada Names Connected Nation as Its Designated Eligible Entity for Broadband Mapping and Planning Stimulus Funding

Carson City, NV – Yesterday, Connected Nation met with broadband stakeholders from across Nevada to discuss its role in creating a comprehensive broadband availability map for the state. This meeting marks the beginning of Connected Nation’s newly-formed relationship with the state since Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons notified the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) that Connected Nation will serve as the state’s designated eligible entity under the State Broadband Data and Development Grant Program pursuant to P.L. 110-385. Connected Nation’s designation coincides with Gov. Gibbons’ creation of the Nevada Broadband Task Force, which is charged with identifying and removing barriers to broadband access and identifying opportunities for increased broadband applications and adoption in unserved and underserved areas of Nevada.
