Provo receives third annual honor for digital inclusion

For three years in a row, Provo has been recognized by the National Digital Inclusion Alliance as a Trailblazer city! 👏 👏 👏



NDIA’s ‘Trailblazers’ are judged based on six criteria showing a city or county’s digital inclusion leadership. These include having full-time local government staff, a digital inclusion plan, an open-access coalition, survey research, funded digital inclusion programming and efforts to increase affordability of home broadband service.


We are pleased to receive this recognition honoring our decades of dedication to create and maintain a connected city with the right tools needed for a modern, economically vibrant community. We continue to support our community’s digital inclusion effort to improve resident access to an internet capable computing device, a robust broadband internet service, along with the knowledge and support to use them.


We will continue to work towards digital equity in our community knowing of its importance in removing barriers to gainful employment, positive social engagement, knowledge growth and overall positive public outcomes. We look forward to even greater results as we continue to support and roll out community-based programs to combat the digital divide in our neighborhoods and our city with aspirational hopes to positively impact our state, our country and our world.
