“A high-speed Internet connection is essential in education, the job market, health care, and accessing online government resources—including voter registration and education.  We are making significant progress in closing the Digital Divide and connecting Californians to high-speed Internet, but we have much more to do. 87% of Californians now have broadband Internet access, but only 69% connect through a computer at home.  The public-private partnerships fostered by the CETF have been integral to California’s strategy of achieving widespread broadband deployment and ensuring Digital Inclusion and equity for all Californians.”   Secretary of State Alex Padilla, Former Chair, Senate Committee on Energy,Utilities, and Communications

“Over and over we run into the Digital Divide and lack of connectivity because there is simply inequitable distribution of connectivity across the state.We have to think about rural communities, but also urban communities that cannot access remote learning even if it was an option.  This emergency really puts into relief the importance of having this infrastructure in place for when you need it the most.”   Ben Chida, Chief Deputy Cabinet Secretary Office of Governor Gavin Newsom

“Caltrans oversees 50,000 miles of highway, as large as the U.S.Interstate network.That’s a lot of infrastructure and an opportunity to help support Broadband For All.”  Toks Omishakin,  Director California Department of Transportation
