Broadband Stakeholders in Arizona

Community leaders,
broadband developers,
and the public

They are comming together; to secure a better future for Arizona

The time is now; our economy has taken a beating, and the opportunity has never been greater.

With Federal funding in place, the Digital Arizona Program is working hard to consolidate the forces that together can enable Broadband to propel Arizona's economy into a brighter future and make Arizona a national model.

Toward that objective, the Digital Arizona Council has been established to listen to the needs of the divergent parties, suggest solutions and thereby facilitate progress and in time, gain the authority and status necessary to affect public policy.

The Council relies on over 20 years of research and knowledge laid down by the Arizona Strategic Enterprise Technology Office of ADOA, (formally known as GITA.)

This work has led to the development of the Arizona Broadband Map, and is helping to create a specialized Arizona Internet Speed Test, which will add important data concerning actual services delivered, versus what's advertised.

Our effort is designed to involve a broad spectrum of interested parties, from both within the industry, and outside, so all will benefit.

Who are the movers and shakers in our communities who will turn this vitally needed opportunity into a reality for all of Arizona?

Key stakeholders include:

  • School systems and life long learners who benefit from e-Learning concepts to improve educational outcomes and reduce costs, need access to distance education and certification, curriculum resources, and professional communications.
