This week, the White House announced a commitment from 20 internet providers across the country – including those that serve Nevada households – to help reduce costs for consumers while increasing internet speeds. Between the American Rescue Plan funds and other available federal dollars, Nevada is investing over $500 million for high-speed internet initiatives.
Last month, the Interim Finance Committee approved more than $200 million for the Office of Science, Innovation and Technology to pursue universal access to high-speed internet for all Nevadans. Those Funds will help build fiber into nearly every community throughout the state, including tribal communities. Funds will help build fiber to community anchor institutions and residences in nearly every community throughout the state.
