Connected Nation to Unveil Business Broadband Assessment Wednesday

Broadband is the new economic engine driving the twenty-first century economy. But how are the nation’s businesses using (and not using) broadband?

A new business technology assessment to be unveiled by Connected Nation Wednesday sheds a comprehensive light on the subject for the first time. The study is based on scientific surveys of more than 9,600 businesses across 11 states and Puerto Rico.

The findings of the assessment show the large revenue divide between broadband-connected and non-connected businesses and offer insights regarding:

•Use of websites and their impact on business revenues


•Broadband adoption gaps among industry sectors

•Revenue generated online

•Barriers to broadband adoption

This first-of-its-kind assessment will officially be unveiled at a Wednesday, 10 a.m. EST press conference at the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) D.C. Office and will feature Connected Nation officials and other industry leaders. The press conference will be aired via webinar. To register to participate via webinar click here:

Following the press conference, details from the assessment will be available on the Connected Nation website.
