Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act Will Expand Broadband Access to More Americans
Today, IA President and CEO K. Dane Snowden released the following statement after President Joe Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law:
“Today is a noteworthy day for our country. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will help close the digital divide and keep families, businesses, and students connected. I thank President Biden and members of the House and Senate for working across the aisle to support critical investments that will strengthen America’s internet economy and our position as a global technology leader.”
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act includes $65 billion for broadband infrastructure. Last July, IA signed an industry-wide letter endorsing the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework, highlighting the critical investments in broadband and other technology infrastructure included in the framework.
