Helping Communities Bridge the Digital Divide
Whether you are a member of the public, a researcher, a community-based organization, internet service provider, work in local government or economic development this site has the tools to help you. The Broadband Resource rail is a coordinated effort to encourage the build-out of reliable high-speed internet (broadband) infrastructure and use of broadband-based applications to improve lives around the state’s three grand challenges related to: Economic opportunity, Educational Access and Health and Well-Being.
The Resource Navigator
The Resource Navigator® provides a systematic way to identify and organize community resources into an easy-to-use online database. It simplifies the process of linking clients to the right resource at the right time.
We want to understand the ways in which Internet services are used. We would like you to tell us about Internet service availability and use at your location.
The Broadband library contains articles and links to information on broadband infrastructure, digital literacy, and based-applications for your community.
