Addressing the Digital Divide

May 5, 2015 9:06 AM

The City of Madison is continuing to work diligently to address the digital divide and ensure that all Madison residents have access to either free or low-cost high-speed internet.  As technology develops and becomes increasingly innovative, the need to ensure that all youth have access to internet service to complete assignments, research topics of interest, apply to post-secondary education, and develop technological skills that can be put to use in future jobs and careers increases. I am confident that the City of Madison will continue to provide network connections at neighborhood and community centers, libraries, schools, and eventually, cultural centers. While these services are essential, there is still work to be done to ensure that all residents live, work, and play in an equitable Madison community.
