First 100 Days: Building Our Connected Future

The first 100 days of a new Administration and new Congress are critical to charting a clear, bipartisan course for our nation’s policy agenda. We are writing to make clear that whatever the challenge—COVID-19, economic recovery, racial equity, climate change, healthcare, education, job creation, or national security—broadband can and must play an essential role in any plan to lift Americans up and move our nation forward. Below are actions we believe should be prioritized in the First 100 Days to fuel the limitless potential of broadband to rebuild our economy, reinvent our health care and education systems, and improve virtually every aspect of modern life.

Working together, with a shared sense of commitment, clarity and coordination, we can advance the connected interests of all Americans.
