Money - Bead Broadband Funding for Network Expansion

Grant funding such as BEAD money and private dollars have been flowing into the telecom industry for new fiber and broadband expansion at record-breaking rates. However, new challenges arise as traditional providers expand and upgrade their networks. How do you ensure network expansion without unnecessary business expansion?

Now is the time for operators and service providers to closely examine their internal processes and systems, and they need to ask themselves the following questions.

  • Can you truly scale with your current software?
  • Do you still have to click ten times in your system to provision a customer? 
  • Are you still dealing with customer-centered billing and confusion about where your data is and if it’s accurate?

The Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program provides $42.45 billion to expand high-speed internet access by funding planning, infrastructure deployment, and adoption programs in all 50 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

It is a once-in-a-generation funding opportunity to promote high-speed internet access for underserved and unserved communities. The program aims to bridge the digital divide by providing resources to state, local, and tribal governments, non-profit organizations, and for-profit companies to support the deployment and expansion of broadband infrastructure.

Successful grand applications will prioritize projects that address equity issues such as impious broadband access for low-income households, rural areas and communities of color.

Below you can take a look at the timeline for BEAD. Read more about NTIA’s  workforce planning guide aimed at helping individual states in establishing workforce requirements involving the program here.
