Cabinet-level Priority

The National Broadband Plan should recommend that President Obama promote policies to stimulate both demand for, and supply of, robust and affordable broadband. The President should direct the heads of all federal departments and agencies to take specific action to:


* Ensure that affordable, robust broadband is available to all Americans;


* Include the use of broadband in meeting the mission of their agency;


* Make the implementation of the National Broadband Plan one of its highest priorities, and prepare action plans on initiatives their agencies are undertaking to help achieve the goals of the NBS; and


* Report annually to the President on the progress of these initiatives.
