As states struggle with financial difficulties, there continues to be growing concern about the access to broadband service. Many policy makers consider this question of access as a way to encourage economic growth and development in certain rural and urban areas. This 42-page report from the Pew Center on the State was released in June 2010, and it discusses how states are attempting to ramp up broadband access, along with providing a detailed analysis of what broadband matters. The report starts with a brief overview, and then visitors are invited to view the report's interactive content, which includes "How Fast is Your State's Internet?" The report is a "must-read" for persons with an interest in public policy and governance, and it is one that touches on a number of timely topics.
