To build on the momentum of the FCC’s national plan and its call for public-private partnerships to improve broadband adoption, Microsoft joined a group of ISPs, technology companies and nonprofits to help bring broadband services, computer technology and training to low-income homes throughout the U.S. “Led by OneEconomy and Connected Nation, Digital Adoption Coalition will focus on strategies to expand affordable broadband access and adoption so that citizens gain the tools they need to seek jobs, stay informed and pursue economic opportunity. These tools include building out needed infrastructure, providing affordable computers, hooking up Internet service and training citizens on digital literacy, in partnership with public housing authorities across the nation. This commitment will deepen our partnership with federal, state and local governments as we collaborate to reach and empower more households with access to 21st century technology,” says Curt Kolcun.
