Rural Telecommunications Congress Releases Report on State Broadband Offices

AUSTIN, April 5, 2016 - The Rural Telecommunications Congress and the Strategic Networks Group released the results from a survey of 48 state broadband offices. The report is titled "The 50 States of Broadband: A state-by-state study of the state of broadband investment and activity in each American state," and will be released on Wednesday.

Of the 48 states responding the survey, 25 of them have a state broadband office. But only 28 percent surveyed said the state had annual funding to support broadband initiatives. However, only nine states are funding planning and support activities going forward.

The full report will be released on Wednesday.
