Broadband Planning Committees

Top Takeaways

  • Forming a broadband planning committee is one of the first things to do in working to improve broadband access.
  • Identify a “champion” of your committee, likely someone who can serve as a chairperson or primary contact person for the committee. Be certain that the champion will have enough time, energy and interest to manage the efforts.

Improving broadband internet access in your community requires strategic planning and a group of dedicated people who will work constantly and strategically toward your community’s broadband goals. Your broadband planning committee should be representative of your entire community, incorporating committed stakeholders who will benefit greatly from broadband access.
