Igniting Broadband


A partnership to drive broadband adoption is how Sue Spradley described the purpose of U.S. Ignite. With the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the National Science Foundation, and the GENI Program Office as its catalyst, US Ignite is forming public and private partnerships to fulfill its mission. For instance, one of their key partners is the Mozilla Foundation, the powerful open source group. Spradley explains how U.S. Ignite is working with broadband providers of all stripes to identify and share best practices for maximizing the benefit of the broadband infrastructure, particularly in rural areas.
