Addressing the Urban Digital Divide

Even in densely populated areas, internet connectivity remains out of reach or unreliable for many people. Broadband is often too expensive for low-income families, and many multi-tenant dwelling units are served by only one ISP.

Some providers see an opportunity to offer faster broadband at lower price points via fiber overbuilds, shared fiber, FWA and/or CBRS. This panel will explore opportunities to help close the urban digital divide.
