Challenge

High-speed broadband telecommunications access is critical for businesses to thrive in the global marketplace and for San Joaquin Valley residents to access services and education. Adoption rates continue to be low and must be increased in order to reduce the digital divide and provide for increased employment opportunities. Affordable basic training also continues to be scarce especially in rural communities.

2016 Year in Review
Focus

The Advanced Communications Services Work Group focuses on facilitating the use of regionwide, advanced communications. Recognizing that high-speed, broadband telecommunications access is essential in doing business and accessing services; the work group is promoting greater deployment and use in the underserved San Joaquin Valley.
