Statement of NCTA – The Internet & Television Association Regarding NTIA Broadband Funding Guidance

“With release of today’s Notices of Funding Opportunity by NTIA, the country marks another important milestone on our national journey to promote digital equity and connect unserved Americans to robust broadband service. With networks that now reach over 80% of American homes with gigabit-capable technology and comprehensive broadband adoption programs, cable internet providers are continuing to expand private efforts and work in partnership with government officials to shrink the digital divide. We look forward to reviewing the notices and continuing to engage with policymakers as plans are developed that will promote fair, efficient and transparent processes in federal and state programs, distribute funding where it is needed most, and bring the benefits of broadband to all.”
