An increasing number of cities and towns throughout the U.S. are investigating municipal broadband as a progressively appealing and efficient method to deliver widespread, affordable high-speed internet to their residents and businesses.

To assist, the American Association for Public Broadband launched a new handbook to guide communities through the logistical, technical, financial, and political hurdles they may encounter on the journey to building their own broadband networks.

The guide, authored by AAPB’s Bill Coleman and published by Benton Institute for Broadband & Society, outlines the crucial decisions and steps required to establish a successful public broadband network.

The guide, according to the organization, aims to assist communities in leveraging these networks for economic development, smart city initiatives, and attracting new residents.
