The U.S. Broadband Coalition’s report on increasing broadband adoption and use got a boost on Wednesday as its working group racked up an endorsement from the Joint Center for Political Economic Studies Media and Technology Institute. The working group report presented – but did not endorse – a number of policy options for increasing broadband adoption among minorities.
THe U.S. Broadband Coalition, a group comprised of more than 160 different stakeholders from industry, labor, and government, released its original report last month, but withheld the section drafted by its Adoption and Use Working Group until now in order to make use of more accurate data. Joint Center CEO Ralph Everett said the coalition should be commended “for recognizing the positive impact that rapid broadband adoption can have on our economy and highlighting ways to accelerate the process.”
