Broadband expansion and funding has become a significant topic at the state level. Legislators are working on solutions to deliver high speed broadband to rural communities.
Throughout the year SBCA worked with our local lobbyists and broadband partners to help educate decision makers throughout the country on the benefits of satellite delivered broadband. These efforts included testifying before committees, meeting key legislators and conducting technology demos. We are advocating to have satellite included in future state funding bills and have introduced model legislation in IN and MN which we hope will be included in the 2019 session. This will help increase your sales and visibility in the community.
We expect 2019 to be a busy year for broadband and look forward to ensuring our technology is included as part of the overall solution to provide border to border high speed internet to communities throughout the country.
