Access Sonoma Broadband

It has become impossible to lead one’s life, or conduct one’s business without adequate broadband access. Throughout the world broadband is becoming recognized not as a luxury, but instead - a necessity.

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 (ASB) to work with communities to close the digital divide.
