Presenter resources

  • HR&A Advisors and CTC Technology & Energy – together as the Broadband Equity Partnership – are conducting a survey for government and non-profit broadband leaders to shape priorities for broadband investment and equity in the Biden-Harris administration. They will be working with the Benton Institute for Broadband & Society to publish the results of this survey and plan to communicate to the new administration and communities about these issues. Findings will be analyzed in aggregate, with all individual responses kept confidential.
  • The Broadband Equity Partnership is seeking responses from State and local government leaders – including CTOs, CIOs, Economic Development heads, and other decision-makers – and non-profit leaders working with the public sector. They would be most grateful if you would share the link widely with your networks. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and will be open through midnight on January 8, 2021: https://broadbandequity.org/survey
  • If you have any questions, the survey administrators can be reached at survey@broadbandequity.org. The survey has the potential to impact translating federal policy to locally-based solutions.
