NTIA Unveils Toolkit to Help Communities Develop Broadband Roadmap

CellTowerThe Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration has issued a toolkit that offers six steps on how communities can develop a roadmap to develop and expand broadband networks to unserved areas as well as support public computer centers.

NTIA said Thursday the toolkit titled Planning a Community Broadband Roadmap was released as part of the BroadbandUSA program that works to help communities expand their broadband capacity and adopt wireless broadband networks through technical support and publications.

The toolkit details ways on how to set up a team to create a vision, evaluate broadband-related gaps and resources in communities, involve local stakeholders and select technology platforms.

Tips on how to choose an organizational model and develop project plans are also provided in the document.

NTIA said the resource also covers best practices identified by grant recipients under the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program.
