2022 New Jersey Women Business Leaders Forum, Sept. 28 & 29 REGISTER NOW

In an OpEd appearing in ROI-NJ this week, NJBIA President and CEO Michele Siekerka said New Jersey should use a business approach with federal infrastructure funding to become the first state in the nation to make broadband universally available to every home and business.

“As Thomas Edison’s home state, New Jersey knows how to solve technological, educational, and economic challenges,” Siekerka wrote. “Let’s apply that can-do spirit to the must-do challenges of broadband availability, affordability, and adoption.

“The influx of federal broadband funding gives us an unprecedented opportunity to advance digital inclusion and equity – as long as state and local leaders use these dollars wisely and avoid repeating past mistakes.”
