Broadband Internet Access and Adoption

Issue brief
Energy, Utilities & Technology 

Broadband internet access (“broadband”) is a necessity for remote learning, telework, and telemedicine. The COVID-19 pandemic has made clear that every home needs a broadband connection with speed and capacity to facilitate multiple devices streaming content at the same time. Many Washington residents are unserved or underserved. Unserved means having no access to internet connection, and underserved means that whatever connection exists does not have the speed and capacity to function reliably and to be used in all the applications, like videoconferencing, that are needed today
