Fortunately, the $1 trillion infrastructure improvement package allots $65 billion to improve the telecommunications infrastructure.

After an entity has secured funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, it can then follow these steps to improve the telecom infrastructure in respective local areas.

Step 1 – Acquire data about the current local infrastructure in place

Step 2 Review the data for areas of possible improvement, heavy concentration, etc.

Step 3 Acquire data for the current providers in the area

Step 4 Schedule necessary projects with current providers, possible missing telco providers, and the construction developers to improve the local fiber infrastructure

Past Affordability and Accessibility Issues

There are two main factors that have been inhibiting many local governments from improving the fiber infrastructure prior tot he passing of the bill. These factors are affordability and accessibility. The affordability factor can be broken down even further into the following aspects.

Local governments have not been able to afford the fiber infrastructure projects. This includes the employees, the research, the data, and the implementation. In addition to the funding issue, there is also the factor of not having a consumer demand due to consumers not having the ability to afford expensive fiber connections. However, with the funding allocated from the recent deal, it is possible that the affordability will be more feasible for suppliers and the end consumers.

The accessibility factor that has been inhibiting local fiber infrastructure can be seen in more remote areas. There are specific areas throughout the United States that still lack the infrastructure for connectivity due to the rural landscape. However, with the affordability due to the funding aspect of this deal, it can address the telecom accessibility issues as well. With these issues being addressed, local governments can now have the tools to improve the fiber infrastructure in their respective regions. Many government entities are now faced with the question of where to gather the information necessary to improve the region.
