Broadband Internet Access

Achieve 100% access to high-speed internet and 95% adoption by households during the next five years - while continually investing in higher quality access

There are still large geographic portions of Michigan without access to high-speed internet. Approximately 213,000 households do not have access. 

Michigan lags the nation in high-speed internet adoption - Michigan needs 17% more households to adopt to reach its goal.   

 

 

 
WHY THIS GOAL IS AMBITIOUS, YET ATTAINABLE 
  • AMBITIOUS: Only the U.S. Virgin Islands has full access according to the data, so to obtain full coverage, Michigan would have to leapfrog 29 other states. This is a similar challenge for adoption. 

  • ATTAINABLE:  There are substantial resources available federally to help achieve these goals. There are clear best practices and programmatic options to help Michigan attain these goals within the desired timeframe.
