For the U.S. to remain a competitive, innovative economic global superpower, the country’s infrastructure needs to be connected, modernized and reimagined for the challenges of the future.

Government and industries such as energy, transportation, telecommunications, and healthcare all rely on the technology sector to bring new innovations that will serve as a backbone for our next-generation critical infrastructure systems. Technology companies are ensuring that infrastructure systems are accessible and equitable for all communities by making significant and targeted investments in areas such as modern broadband connectivity.

Good policy means securing adequate resources and R&D to allow for the development and deployment of technologies that will support the transformation of our critical sectors and infrastructure systems. It also means ensuring all Americans have access to affordable high-speed internet access and making sure the U.S. invests in physical and digital infrastructure now to ensure that future generations are able to take advantage of these economic foundations and builds upon them to ensure a better future for all Americans.
