The pandemic has drawn attention to the lack of broadband service in homes. The biggest barriers are lack of affordable broadband and digital literacy skills. Join us for a robust discussion of the barriers and potential solutions. This session will cover what increased broadband adoption can do for the economy, the impacts of digital redlining, and what recent studies on adoption-oriented policies can tell us.
