Build Broadband

The incoming Trump administration has already recognized the importance of advanced communications networks, including “telecommunications” in a short list of infrastructure priorities on the transition website. Advanced communications infrastructure capable of delivering high-speed, high-quality, affordable broadband to all corners of America is essential for economic development, civic engagement, and improved health care and educational opportunities. In rural areas, broadband provides vital connections for consumers as well as for agricultural production, public safety and businesses seeking new locations in which to operate. Studies have also shown how rural broadband investments deliver substantial payback for urban areas and the nation as a whole.

NTCA members are community-based small businesses that drive these technological and economic engines in rural America by investing in cutting-edge broadband networks and delivering high-quality telecom services. NTCA’s members get rural America connected and keep it that way—but the areas in which they operate aren’t easy to reach, containing small populations spread across vast rural distances. To get and keep these areas connected, we need pro-investment public policies and a firm commitment to the vitality and sustainability of American infrastructure. We welcome the chance for a conversation with the Trump administration about how our innovative small businesses can play an important role by investing in rural telecom infrastructure and promoting economic growth that benefits all Americans.
