Advocacy & Public Policy

Dedicated public policy advocacy with a focus on connecting every American with fiber broadband technology is at the forefront of the Fiber Broadband Association’s mission. Engaging both the federal and state levels, specifically policymakers in Congress, at the Federal Communications Commission and within the White House and Executive Branch Agencies, the association champions the interests of the fiber broadband sector, addressing challenges in a rapidly evolving landscape.

Established in 2021, the Fiber Broadband Association has been a consistent advocate for the hundreds of representatives that make up the fiber broadband ecosystem. Amid technological advancements and regulatory complexities, the association’s commitment to initiatives addressing the digital divide remains steadfast. Additionally, the association actively supports the development of thoughtful policies for constructing future-proof networks, powering SMART communities, and a balanced playing field for economic opportunities for businesses and consumers. Through these endeavors, the association ensures its members a place at the table in shaping policy aimed at a digitally connected and prosperous future, deploying resilient services over cutting-edge networks.

Fiber Day on the Hill

April 11, 2024 – Rayburn Building

Fiber Day on the Hill is an opportunity to participate in demo stations presented by FBA members that explain what fiber is and how it improves U.S. households, communities, and the economy – including facilitating 5G, precision agriculture, education, healthcare, and economic opportunities. The demos also include an opportunity to learn how to splice fiber and demonstrate the environmental and sustainable benefits of fiber and how fiber technology is able to scale and power future connectivity like quantum computing.
Since early in 2022, NTCA and the Fiber Broadband Association (FBA) have joined to help state broadband offices and interested stakeholders implement the Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) program in ways that will have meaningful and lasting impacts. That is why we are excited to release Playbook 3.0 – our latest effort to provide additional in-depth substantive assistance for states as they develop their initial proposals and action plans.
