    What is BroadbandThe FCC defines broadband as an Internet connection at a speed of 200 kilobits per second (kbps) in either direction (basic services). In the Networked World this basic broadband service is no longer adequate to support services such as eCommerce, eHealth, eGovernment, and eLearningATIC and CIAC have recommended advanced broadband services providing a minimum of 1 Mbps

    Status of Broadband In ArizonaGreater metropolitan areas have an increasing number of affordable basic (200 Kb) and advanced (1 Mbps +) broadband optionsMany smaller and rural communities are under-served or have no broadband access. The majority of rural communities now have access to basic broadband last-mile services such as cable modem, DSL, or wireless. Of Arizonas 225 communities of 500 population or more, 40 have no Broadband availability. Many rural communities still lack consistent coverage of basic broadband services and they do not have the infrastructure to support advanced (1mps+) broadband deployment.
