Investing in Broadband Infrastructure

[Slides] Investing in Broadband Infrastructure – Guyesha Blackshear, REMI

Access to affordable and reliable broadband is an essential element of 21st-century infrastructure and promotes economic competitiveness.

On Thursday, December 9, 2021, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (ET), we will be hosting “Investing in Broadband Infrastructure,” our special webinar presentation that examines the demographic, economic, and fiscal effects of investing in broadband.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, signed into law in November 2021 by President Biden, provides $65 billion in new funding for expanding broadband infrastructure and promoting adoption in America. We will demonstrate the economic impact of federally-backed broadband expansion during this presentation using our premiere add-on module, REMI Socioeconomic Indicators (SEI).

REMI SEI clarifies the changes technology improvements play in orchestrating greater mobility, economic development, and improved quality of life for various communities. This dynamic module provides granular insights to explore the forecasted differences for output variables, such as jobs and labor force participation by race/gender, educational attainment, inflation impacts, and income quintiles.
