Statement on NTIA’s Release of BEAD Program Notice of Funding Opportunity:

“As the country’s top rural broadband provider, Charter applauds NTIA’s recognition of the importance of promoting streamlined permitting processes and cost-effective access to poles, which are increasingly identified as essential to achieving 100% connectivity across the country as quickly as possible. Faster access to poles can shave months – or even years – off of the time to deploy and is essential to getting 100% of the country online.

We look forward to continuing to work with Secretary Raimondo, Assistant Secretary Davidson, the NTIA team, and state and local leaders across the country given the importance of private sector partners in ensuring these historic programs make progress toward achieving 100% access to and adoption of broadband that will lead to connectivity for all.”
