Rural Broadband

The Fiber Broadband Association advocates for policies to encourage the deployment of all-fiber networks in rural areas.  People living in rural communities deserve the same broadband performance received by urban consumers so they have robust access to all economic, educational, and healthcare resources.  As such, we support requiring that Universal Service Funds be used to deploy all-fiber networks to the premises.  By pursuing such an approach, the government will avoid duplicate or wasteful government investment as the bandwidth necessary to ensure comparable levels of services increases.
