These activities include administration of the Recovery-Act-funded Broadband Technology Opportunities Program and State Broadband Initiative; creating and maintaining the first public, searchable nationwide map of broadband availability; broadband-usage research that can inform efforts to close the digital divide; and promoting digital literacy to help Americans compete in the 21st century economy.
