Action Center: Smart Infrastructure

Building Infrastructure to Connect Communities

One issue that Americans can all agree on: supporting an accessible, thriving and secure broadband infrastructure that delivers the internet experience consumers want and deserve. Regardless of political party, age, race or geographical region, the internet plays such an integral role in each of our lives that it’s hard to imagine a time without it.

Education and healthcare, communication and commerce — all built off the backbone of strong and reliable broadband networks. To protect this foundation, policymakers must focus on innovative and forward-thinking policy that works for consumers and innovators alike.

Broadband must be the foundation of our national infrastructure

There is broad agreement that major investment in our national infrastructure is long overdue. This investment must include not only strengthening our bridges and roads, but a commitment to broadband deployment in unserved areas of the country.

What we need: A serious infrastructure bill that narrows the digital divide, supports broadband deployment, modernizes networks and gets more Americans connected to the internet. An infrastructure bill should future-proof new infrastructure with fiber capabilities so new technology can be integrated and modified as years go by.

Smart, connected solutions must be an integral part of every mile of American infrastructure constructed or reconstructed in the coming years.
