There is a critical need for broadband availability in Missouri. The Office of Broadband Development is focused on addressing this issue by working with providers, communities, and stakeholders in Missouri to expand and accelerate broadband deployment in five core areas including:
- Increase broadband data collection and utilization
- Accelerate broadband infrastructure and access.
- Leverage partnerships to accelerate broadband efforts.
- Increase broadband adoption & awareness
- Promote efficiencies and opportunities in broadband development
Strategies achieved in each of these efforts will lead to significant improvement in broadband access across Missouri. Thus, providing enhancements to businesses, agriculture, healthcare, education, and workforce development priorities.
