The focus on broadband access couldn’t be greater. Elected officials, policy makers, and consumers all recognize how important broadband access has become. Illinois has resumed the Connect Illinois Broadband Grant Program to invest $350 million in partnership with broadband providers or other entities to expand access to unserved and underserved homes and businesses. At the same time, the Illinois Office of Broadband is developing its plan in conjunction with the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to partner with broadband providers and other entities to invest more than $1 billion in Illinois through the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) program.

As we continue to advance this historic opportunity to improve broadband access and adoption, join us at Margaritaville Lake of the Ozarks Resort for the IBTA 118th Annual Convention where you can hear directly from the state and federal leaders administering these programs, learn from other national experts about current broadband and telecommunications issues, and network with other broadband providers and vendors as we continue “Connecting Communities Through Broadband.”
