The Fifty States of Broadband

How are States Progressing with Broadband? 

How is your state faring in the race for broadband? Are your strategies for broadband access, adoption, and economic growth making the grade?

In early 2016, Strategic Networks Group (SNG), in partnership with the Rural Telecommunications Congress, undertook a first-of-its-kind census of States to gauge the state of broadband efforts and outcomes. We are proud to bring you The 50 States of Broadband report that looks at how States are faring with respect to five key dimensions of broadband: availability, adoption, meaningful use, growth investment, and regulation. The goal is to reveal how each State is doing regarding broadband and to share this information among all participating States toward further progress on improving the state of broadband.

Strategic Networks Group (SNG) is pleased to bring you the current state of broadband activity and investment across the U.S. in a newly-released, unprecedented 50 States report.  Download this free report today to discover A State-by-State Study on the state of broadband investment and activity.

While almost every State has put effort into broadband in recent years, more than half believe that more is still needed. At the same time only one in five States track and measure economic and social outcomes from their efforts.
