Learn how the information and communications technology industry will jumpstart the U.S. Economy, using stimulus funds to build out new high-speed networks for broadband-enabled technology.
Arlington, Va. - As the funding provided under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is beginning to flow in 2010, the information and communiations technology (ICT) industry is poised to kickstart the U.S. economy. Broadband stimulus funds will contribute to double-digit growth in backbone infrastructure spending during the next two years, the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) reports in its 2010 ICT Market Review & Forecast. Broadband growth will be fueled by penetration into rural areas, in large part because of the stimulus package. During the next four years, more than 37 million broadband subscriptions will be added, bringing the total to nearly 119 million, a 46 percent gain from 2009.
Preregister for TIA's Free Webinar - Broadband Stimulus: Where, When and How Much? - to be held on Friday, March 19 at 10 a.m. Economist Arthur Gruen, principal author of TIA's 2010 ICT Market Review & Forecast, will discuss the report, then Danielle Coffey, TIA Vice President for Government Relations, will give an overview of the FCC's National Broadband Plan that will be delivered to Congress this week.
