The Benefits of Broadband

24 Aug, 2010

We just released the 2010 edition of the Benefits of Broadband — a compilation of fact sheets that details the benefits of affordable, high-speed Internet for all Americans.

CWA President Larry Cohen introduces the report:

"We need high-speed Internet for our homes, schools, hospitals and workplaces. Speed defines what is possible on the Internet. It determines whether we will have the 21st century networks we need to create the jobs of the future, develop a sustainable economy and support innovation."

Written with the help of Speed Matters' partners, Benefits of Broadband includes thirteen fact sheets:

  1. Reducing the Digital Divide in Underserved Communities
  2. The Environment
  3. Economic Growth and Jobs
  4. Rural Communities
  5. Distance Learning
  6. E-Government and Civic Engagement
  7. Health Care
  8. K-12 Education
  9. Libraries
  10. People with Disabilities
  11. Public Safety
  12. Digital Literacy
  13. Senior Citizens
