SIIA Comments to NTIA on the Importance of Broadband Access
SIIA applauds NTIA for collecting input on how to better reach internet users nationwide and provide broadband access. Broadband capabilities are essential in today’s learning environment. Students and parents leverage tools to access education resources from home via the internet every day, and educators use these tools to connect with their students. Inadequate broadband access not only creates physical hurdles that students and educators must overcome, but also presents other academic challenges that can have lasting impacts on academic success.
