Our Vision and History


We believe that everyone should have opportunities to improve their lives, families, and communities regardless of who they are, where they live, or how they begin.


We develop and provide the tools, resources, and methods that help states and communities create and implement solutions to their broadband and digital technology gaps.


We assess and plan for the expansion of broadband access, adoption, and use. We empower people with technology skills and resources to improve their quality of life, and we develop public-private partnerships to bring technology access to targeted geographies and population.
