Regarding the Feb. 7 Page 1 story “Broadband Lacks Broad Reach: Businesses A Focus Of Debate On Access”:
Thanks to the hard work of our broadband providers, Connecticut is an enviably wired state. However, because other states’ IT investments will soon make them more competitive, we cannot accept the status quo. We need a plan that’s supported by our tech companies, IT providers and government.
It is ironic that at a time where we are trying to find $60 billion-plus to repair our aging transportation infrastructure we are on the verge of disinvesting in the one aspect of our IT infrastructure that can maintain our state’s competitive position in the nation and world.
Connecticut’s future lies in broadband wires and cables and the bits and bytes they carry. We must all recognize this, set that vision, and work together to make it happen.
