Provo has been ranked #8 for the greatest share of households with broadband internet subscriptions in the Nation! According to a new report from the Brookings Institution the Provo-Orem metropolitan area has a total of 154,567 households. 132,000 of those households have broadband internet subscriptions. There is no question that the Internet is a huge boon to the economy and society, but maximizing its potential is only possible if all individuals are online.
New survey questions from the U.S. Census Bureau enable analysis at the metropolitan scale, creating new ways to measure and understand where America falls short in getting people online. This subnational approach is especially important because local and state governments play a lead role in guiding Internet policy, including infrastructure deployment, public outreach, skills development, and affordability programs.
