The 50 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 enabling you to be competitive? 

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 five key dimensions of broadband: availability, adoption, meaningful use, growth investment, and regulation. The goal of this research is to reveal what each State is doing regarding broadband and to share this information among all participating States toward further progress on improving their state of broadband.

Please feel free to download our current 50 States of Broadband Report below, and we would love to know your interest in seeing an update of the 50 States of Broadband for 2020.  If you would like to participate in a 50 States study for 2020, or to be one of the sponsors of this important work, or simply just want to see the report, let us know by completing the form to the right!

Research Bytes from 50 States of Broadband Report

The state of broadband availability as well as efforts on broadband initiatives varies considerably by each State. SNG’s research shows that States with a focus on broadband, such as having a broadband office, undertake and support more direct activities to increase availability and to promote adoption and meaningful use – even without major investment. 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.
