Smart Communities Initiative

CETF and Community Partners, California Community Technology Policy Group, and the Broadband Institute of California (Santa Clara University School of Law) published a summary and analysis of government-led wireless projects titled “Wired for Wireless” which provides local governments and stakeholders with critical information and a checklist to guide consideration of wireless initiatives. CETF and the Center for the New Orange County compiled examples of existing local government policies regarding broadband and promulgated a comprehensive sample policy as a resource for local and regional government leaders. And, CETF is working with the State Librarian to promote libraries as hubs for digital literacy and wireless “hot spots” throughout California.
