Broadband planning resources

We face complex and deep-rooted challenges to delivering Broadband for All. It will require partnerships with and support from the broadband industry and federal, local, and tribal governments. You may be developing a plan, carrying out that plan, or in the many stages in between. To help, we’ve gathered some tools as you work to expand broadband access and narrow the digital divide in your community.

Included here are:

  • Resources and toolkits specific to broadband planning and implementation
  • Digital inclusion plans, initiatives, and best practices
  • Digital skills training tools

This collection is designed to help you plan for broadband deployment and all the other essential aspects of digital equity and inclusion. It will continue to evolve and grow. We invite you to browse and use these resources and encourage you to share yours.

California Local Jurisdiction Permitting Playbook

  • California Local Jurisdiction Permitting Playbook
    California’s Broadband for All Action Plan directs the California Department of Technology (CDT) to explore actions to enhance permitting processes at all levels of government to support broadband deployment in the State. As part of this effort, CDT and the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) created the Permitting Playbook to share best-practices, example policies and a checklist to streamline the process for deploying broadband regionally.
