Expanding Broadband Access

Our team is improving broadband access around the United States. According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), there are 44 million households in the U.S. who do not have a standard broadband connection, and a further 18 million Americans who have access to broadband but not at the speeds necessary for adequate learning, business, and health.

We are putting our expertise in delivering digitally enabled infrastructure solutions to work, helping to improve the livability of communities through smarter, safer, cleaner infrastructure – and that includes reliable and fast internet access.
