Welcome to Connected Nation’s broadband data center. Here you will find the latest research, policyand mapping efforts of Connected Nation and our programs. We invite you to explore our work on the access, adoption, and use of broadband.





Connected Nation is focused on closing the digital divide by working with states, communities, families, and individuals to realize the great economic and social advantages that occur when broadband availability is accelerated in unserved areas and broadband use is increased in all areas – rural and urban alike.

The broadband deployment and adoption patterns of households, businesses, and community anchor institutions vary substantially. As a result, overcoming the nation’s challenges in increasing broadband availability and utilization will require detailed and granular data collection and analysis, of both supply and demand conditions.

Connected Nation works and supports the broadband planning activities in state and communities by providing extensive broadband policy consultation. These activities include compiling and understanding broadband connectivity challenges of community anchor institutions, gathering and compiling information and data that supports broadband, advocating on the both national and state-level for public policies that promote the adoption, access and use of broadband.
