When talking to rural leaders about high-speed networks, they often ask, "What would we do with all of that bandwidth or capacity?" The Broadband Toolkit begins to answer to their question.
We’ve researched hundreds of cutting edge applications that require significant bandwidth in the business, government, education, health care and consumer sectors. In addition to a rich applications section, the toolkit includes sections on Market Development, Community Assistance and Community Networks. Much of this information comes from our years of working with communities.
We invite you to explore the toolkit, and to share it with your friends, colleagues and community leaders. From links to a favorite TV show and assistance with homework, to tools to help plan for your community’s broadband future, the toolkit has something for everyone!
