  • Thank you Spencer It is no news to you in this room and joining us online that broadband is a no longer a luxury, but a necessity for competing in today’s global marketplace. Like electricity a century ago, we are facing similar challenges in deploying and mapping the availability and quality of broadband in our state. That is really what this project is all about, getting Utah connected. So I’m going to talk briefly about our project, other efforts to expand broadband in our state, and how we plan to achieve our goals.
  • To develop a statewide map of available broadband services and a plan to increase broadband adoption and deployment in the state. The project will help identify critical unserved and underserved areas and populations. This information will help in the development of a statewide plan to expand affordable, reliable broadband services to every citizen of the state.
  • We are funded by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (also known as the NTIA) through the State Broadband Data and Development Program (also known as SBDD). Similar efforts are being undertaken across the nation, to help in the development of a national broadband map, which is planned to be released by the FCC in February. $1.5 Million was awarded for broadband data collection and mapping activities, over a two-year period Plus, $500,000 for broadband planning activities, over two years. The total grant award from NTIA is just over $2 million The State was required to provide an in-kind match in mostly in the form of donated employee time of approximately $500,000 Bringint the total prospective project cost estimate= $2,555,553
  • Will bring the grand total award, over five years, to approximately $5.2 million.
  • The BTOP or “Broadband Technology Opportunities Program” is also administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), in consultation with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The BTOP program provides grants to support the deployment of broadband infrastructure, enhance and expand public computer centers, and encourage sustainable adoption of broadband service. The BIP or Broadband Initiatives Program is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Utilities Service (RUS) and is providing loans, grants or loan/grant combinations to assist in expanding access and quality of broadband services in rural America. Looking forward to working with these and other broadband grant recipients in our efforts.
  • During the 2007 General Session the Rural Broadband Service Fund was established to support economic growth in rural locations by providing post performance cash grants to companies that commit to construct wire line technology for rural communities to access high speed broadband service. The one-time 1 million dollar fund ended in July of this year. FIX
