Additional Policy Issues
There are many different aspects of anchor institution broadband. Accordingly, SHLB has weighed in a wide-range of issues. Read below to learn more about SHLB's position in regards to Broadband Planning and Mapping, Spectrum, Municipal Broadband, and the 2016 Presidential Election.
Conducting an inventory of the locations and speeds of existing broadband networks for anchors – and identifying gaps in broadband coverage – can help target investments to areas most in need. That's why SHLB urges policymakers to gather detailed, granular information about the availability and use of high-capacity broadband services needed, rather than relying on outdated or generic claims that an area is already served by existing providers.
