Resolution #2014-15 MUNICIPAL BROADBAND

BACKGROUND

Affordable broadband access is important for creating high-paying jobs in cities and providing internet access for educational institutions. Broadband connectivity, however, is only available at high prices, when available at all. A public broadband infrastructure investment would stimulate private sector service delivery.

ACTION

The League will support legislation to allow public-private partnerships to develop broadband infrastructure for development of affordable broadband access.
