Next Century Cities supports mayors and community leaders across the country as they seek to ensure that everyone has fast, affordable and reliable internet access.
Next Century Cities hosted Digital Southwest — A Regional Broadband Summit to discuss stories of local broadband deployment success, digital inclusion initiatives, financing opportunities, and more. This full day event brought together broadband champions from federal, state, and local government, as well as community leaders and broadband policy experts from the Southwest and across the nation.
We are pleased to announce the release of our “Emerging Issues Policy Agenda,” which explores policy areas where Next Century Cities member communities are leading the way in expanding affordable broadband access to all.
