FAST INTERNET FOR ALL. The National Broadband Plan seeks to expand high-speed internet access to all communities in the United States, at the same time as using the internet to improve education, healthcare, and energy. A year after the plan was put in place, many credit the plan with helping connect schools and health centers in low-income communities while others urge the government to pay more attention to community-based broadband networks that serve rural communities. This edition is part of our Conéctate series, to help reduce the digital divide.
