Community Investment Incentives

Communities want and need high performance, future-proof all-fiber networks. Many are working with the Fiber Broadband Association, state broadband agencies, providers, consultants and other entities to drive investments by potential network operators — be they the local incumbent, a competitive entrant or even the community itself.  Communities are creating a compendium of best practices which the Fiber Broadband Association will track and make available.

The Association filed reply comments in the FCC’s Notice of Inquiry Inquiry Concerning Deployment of Advanced Telecommunications Capability to All Americans in a Reasonable and Timely Fashion (Section 706) on October 6.  In our Reply Comments, we urged the FCC to adopt NCTA’s proposal that the FCC view its duties under Section 706 by “monitoring the progress of broadband deployment in the United States.” In order to accomplish this, the Association requested “comparing deployment by census blocks in the present year to deployment to those census blocks in previous years.” The Commission then can assess and publish progress in each census block by comparing it to various benchmarks for reasonable and timely deployment, including by comparing urban to rural deployments, domestic to international (accounting for different demographics, geography, and other factors), and current to previous network technology deployments.
