Pew launches interactive tool that monitors every state's broadband policies and regulations

August 28, 2019

Broadband access is one of the pillars of economic development, yet as many as 24 million Americans, including a disproportionate percentage in rural areas, still lack high-speed and reliable internet service, according to the Pew Charitable Trust. To promote more widespread broadband access and information about the policies of all 50 states, Pew has launched State Broadband Policy Explorer, an interactive web-based tool “that lets you learn how states are expanding access to broadband through laws.”
