To meet the growing demand for affordable, reliable, high-speed connectivity, and to realize the full potential of the Internet of Things, the U.S. must enable mechanisms for direct funding, tax-credits and public-private partnerships aimed at investment in broadband infrastructure, improved access to government-owned infrastructure, and streamlined policies for build out.
TIA supports the "dig once" approach to laying fiber-optic cable when constructing or renovating our nation’s infrastructure. The benefits to this approach include delivering opportunity to more people, expanding economic growth, providing cost savings for the new national public safety broadband network, facilitating next generation mobility, and helping both rural and urban communities across America thrive.
TIA members look forward to working with Congress and the Administration on common sense legislation that will provide our nation with long-term infrastructure cost savings while accelerating the deployment of high-speed broadband service."
