WHAT THEY ARE SAYING: Bipartisan Leaders Applaud Biden-Harris Administration’s Announcement of Over 40B for High-Speed Internet to Kick off Investing in America Tour

On Monday, the Biden-Harris Administration announced that it has allocated over $40 billion to all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five territories to deploy affordable, reliable high-speed Internet service to American families through the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) program.

Every state received more than $100 million in BEAD allocations, with 19 states receiving more than a billion dollars. This investment is the largest single investment in high-speed internet in history, as well as the largest one-time announcement from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The announcement kicked off the three-week Investing in America tour, where President Biden, Vice President Harris, and leaders across the Administration will travel to states and communities across the country to highlight how President Biden’s economic agenda is growing the economy from the middle-out and bottom-up, not top-down.

President Biden and Vice President Harris are delivering on their historic commitment to connect everyone in America to reliable, affordable high-speed internet by the end of the decade.

Bipartisan public officials and industry leaders from all 50 states, D.C. and territories praised the announcement. Here’s what they’re saying:
