American Broadband Initiative to Expand Connectivity for all Americans

On February 13, 2019, NTIA, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the White House Offices of American Innovation, Management and Budget, Science and Technology Policy, and the National Economic Council announced the American Broadband Initiative (ABI), “a comprehensive effort to stimulate increased private sector investment in broadband”. In a report released the same day, over 20 federal agencies set out strategies for “streamlining federal permitting, leveraging federal assets, and maximizing the effectiveness of federal funding for broadband.”

“The American Broadband Initiative and our work to create a National Spectrum Strategy set the stage for the next wave in the technology revolution – one that encourages more private sector investment in fiber, 5G, and other technologies” – says David Redl, Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information and NTIA Administrator.
