This Broadband Adoption Toolkit draws on the experiences of the recipients of grants from the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP). To date, the efforts of BTOP grant recipients have added hundreds of thousands of new broadband subscribers and, in the process, have yielded invaluable lessons on how to serve “hard-to-reach” Americans effectively. They have generated concrete, field-tested ideas for reaching individuals and communities that are not yet computer or broadband users, helping them become “digitally literate” and hopefully long-term subscribers to broadband service. It is the hope of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) that this Toolkit will help other agencies and organizations around the country to accelerate efforts to help the nearly one-third of Americans who are not broadband subscribers in their journey toward full inclusion in the online universe of education, employment, healthcare, and other vital activities.
