The leading broadband industry associations have come together to launch a series of monthly educational webinars for State Broadband Leaders, NTIA, communities, and other key stakeholders focused on key topics related to implementation of the $42.45B NTIA BEAD broadband infrastructure funding program. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to connect every American with broadband, elevating quality of life for generations to come.

On November 9, 2022, we held our our third installment, Meeting BEAD Affordability Requirements, delivered by NCTA – The Internet & Television Association and ACA Connects – America’s Communications Association. In order to receive funding from the BEAD program, states are required to submit a “middle-class affordability plan” and providers must offer a low-cost broadband option to eligible subscribers. View this on-demand webinar to hear ACA Connects and NCTA experts discuss how your state can meet the NTIA affordability requirements.

Upcoming 30-minute webinars will be held the second Wednesday of each month at 1PM ET. The next dates and topics include:

  • December 14 – Permitting/Rights of Way
  • January 11 – Cyber Security
