Community Vision Graphic

“What turns me on about the digital age, what excites me personally, is that you have closed the gap between dreaming and doing.”

Digital connectivity is necessary for businesses, government, and individuals to complete the economic, civic, and social transactions of everyday life. Entrepreneurial communities make digital connectivity a priority, encouraging broadband connectivity, adoption, and usage.

Communities that are digitally connected:

  • Possess adequate telecommunications infrastructure
  • Acquire accessible, reliable, up-to-date, and affordable broadband
  • Recognize the necessity of digital connectivity in economic development
  • Promote technological literacy and access
  • Deliver community services and information online
  • Recognize the importance of connectivity in their community members’ quality of life
