These activities include developing plans and recommending legislation to expand and accelerate deployment of broadband infrastructure; supporting public-private efforts to develop broadband infrastructure; and working with government agencies, broadband providers, and other stakeholders to advance the provision of broadband services to un-served and underserved areas in the State.
