BETTER BROADBAND BUILDS STRONGER COMMUNITIES

American communities without fast, reliable, affordable, and universally available broadband access face big challenges to their economic development, access to modern education and healthcare resources, and ability to attract and retain residents. Estimates vary, but this critical problem affects up to 30 million people across the United States.

Advocates and community leaders who want to solve this challenge are usually on their own to figure out their best potential roadmap. The Community Broadband Action Network (CBAN) can help.

We are a membership organization of over 120 existing and aspiring community-based broadband providers, services companies, and other broadband advocates in 9 states.

CBAN empowers communities to successfully explore and expand local broadband access and adoption through:

  • Education: Lowering sometimes-daunting information barriers through education, coaching, and mentorship
  • Facilitation: Making network construction and operations more viable through the facilitation of information and resource sharing
  • Collaboration: Encouraging new partnerships, both public and private
