The Internet is the backbone of today’s world. It powers education and economy. It supports our health and well-being. And it connects us to our neighbors and to those we love. Americans without internet miss out on many of these benefits. Roughly 1 in 5 American households aren’t connected to the internet. That's a fifth of our country that's unable to fully participate in modern life.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law invests $65 billion to ensure that everyone in America can access affordable, reliable, and high-speed Internet service – Internet for All. The goal of these programs is to achieve digital equity through improved access and intentional, inclusive planning that leads to effective, impactful outcomes.
