With population estimates ranging from 14 million to 35 million, too many communities across the United States face a common critical challenge. Communities that have identified the lack of fast, reliable, affordable and universally available broadband access face a significant challenge to their economic development, access to modern education resources and ability to attract new residents.

Advocates and community leaders who want to solve this challenge are usually on their own to determine where to start and, once having started the process, where to go next.

CBAN’s goal is to provide pathways to success by enabling communities to:

  1. Explore and advocate

  2. Plan and analyze

  3. Design and build

  4. Launch and operate

  5. Leverage and reinvest
