Connected Nation woks with a variety of national, state and local organizations and leading IT companies to promote broadband access, adoption, and use throughout the United States. These efforts are an integral part of Connected Nation's services as we continue to promote stronger communities and markets.
In October 2011, FCC Chairman Genachowski announced the creation of “Connect to Compete,” a new nonprofit initiative. This is a first-of-its-kind national effort to address the barriers to broadband adoption, digital literacy and the employment skills gap. In addition, he announced an FCC proposal to launch a Digital Literacy Corps.
Connected Nation is a strategic advisor in this project and is joined by a host of other organizations including Best Buy’s Geek Squad; Microsoft; Arise Virtual Solutions; CareerBuilder.com, Monster.com, Metrix Learning, Brain Fuse; Sesame, Discovery Education and several of the nation’s most effective grassroots community organizations.
