RCRC on Rural Broadband

Rural broadband is a top priority for rural infrastructure, but this week’s White House press release confirms the President’s infrastructure package will not dedicate funding, or direct Governors to use funds, for broadband deployment projects.

This lack of guidance does not bode well for Rural Broadband which does not have a dedicated cheerleading organization with the political clout that other infrastructure sectors have in California. The organization with the loudest voice with the most significant number of members with skin in the game will have the most impact on how the initiative funds are spent.

The question is how do rural citizens and business ensure that the broadband is essential infrastructure message gets the attention it deserves? Please post your ideas in the comments!
