Delaware Broadband Initiative
Broadband connectivity is essential to the nation's economic growth and social advancement. It is the conduit for economic and social opportunities for U.S. households and a gateway to increased productivity, growth and market access for businesses of all sizes, yet many American businesses, households and critical anchor institutions lack enough broadband availability.
Delaware has made a significant investment in broadband services and wireless expansion, especially in rural underserved areas, through the Delaware Broadband Fund.
Delaware, a state that has been nationally-recognized for the fastest broadband speed in the country, faces the same challenges as many others when it comes to access and affordability — especially in our rural areas.
Significant broadband deserts exist in Kent and Sussex Counties. That is why broadband and wireless connectivity remain a top priority. High-speed internet is critical to building Delaware's innovation economy, supporting education and enhancing citizen safety.
