Connecting People to the
21st Century Economy
From helping small businesses prosper to improving education to connecting individuals to jobs - tech is helping more people access and take advantage of the 21st century economy.
High-speed internet is an increasingly essential element for full participation in today’s digital world. However, 24 million Americans -- including 30 percent of rural America -- lack access to broadband internet and the opportunities it provides for growth and success.
That’s why tech is investing in broadband expansion, opening the doors of opportunity in a global economy. Whether it’s allowing someone in a rural community to get an online education at a competitive school or a good-paying job in another state through teleworking, broadband connects us to the tools and opportunities everyone needs to succeed.
