dc.description.abstract We are writing to ask for your support for a small amendment to the “Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act” that could have a big impact on the country’s schools, libraries, healthcare providers and other community anchor institutions. The Infrastructure legislation properly recognizes that anchor institutions need gigabit broadband connections to serve their communities. The National Broadband Plan Goal #4 (issued in 2010) called for anchor institutions to have gigabit connections by the year 2020, but unfortunately, the nation did not reach that goal. We sincerely believed that the Infrastructure legislation would be the vehicle to upgrade anchor institution connectivity around the country. en_US
