Earlier this month, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration announced a Community Broadband Workshop in Mountain View, California on November 17 to help communities expand their broadband capacity and increase broadband utilization.  At the Workshop, NTIA will provide best practices and lessons learned from network infrastructure build-outs and digital inclusion programs from California and surrounding states, including projects funded by the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) and State Broadband Initiative (SBI) grant programs.
