Survey Topic

Working Title: An Internet for All Americans

Working Description: The stakes are higher than ever for those that who do not have access to the Internet. Connectivity has increasingly become a prerequisite to participation in society, including getting a quality education, access to economic opportunity, civic engagement and even physical world activities, such as parking in many city centers. Despite these realities, some rural, remote, indigenous and inner cities communities are still not online. Achieving the goal of an Internet for all Americans will require collaboration between all stakeholder groups, including local community members and governments, technology experts, civil society, the federal government, and more working together to look beyond mere connectivity to issues including affordability, digital literacy, and services on the Internet that are accessible and relevant to people’s lives.
