“Get Connected”

Get Connected! resources included a multilingual website to help non-users learn the basics about computing devices and broadband, public service announcements, and technical assistance to conduct Community Connect Fairs.  Local governments across California, including all 58 counties, passed Get Connected! resolutions to declare their commitment to getting all residents online.

Highlights of Results:
  • CETF partnered with United Ways of California/2-1-1 California, La Opinion, National Hispanic Media Coalition, and Radio Bilingüe to produce print and broadcast materials for grantees.
  • CETF also developed social media channels and tools for the Internet For All Now mobilization to inform policymakers and regulators.  More than 137 key leaders and organizations endorsed the CETF position on broadband lifeline and more than 70,000 individuals participated in social media to send more than 250,000 emails to the FCC in support of the CETF recommendations.
  • CETF continues to publish the newsletter Let’s Talk Broadband to keep policy makers and stakeholders up to speed on broadband issues.
