It has become impossible to lead one’s life, or conduct one’s business without adequate broadband access. Throughout the world broadband is now recognized as a basic human right.
Unfortunately, rural communities across the nation face economic disenfranchisement and failed economies due to inadequate broadband access.
To address this challenge, the Sonoma County Economic Development Board Department has formed Access Sonoma Broadband to work with residents, businesses and governmental agencies to close the digital divide. ASB has been endorsed by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors. Broadband deployment throughout the County is supported by the Board’s economic development strategy and legislative state and federal legislative platforms.
