Starry Connect Turns 5!
May 18th, 2023
Internet access is the fuel for our digital economy and technology innovation, but for far too many people, it remains a luxury: expensive and out of reach. Millions of Americans lack access to high speed home broadband and many more lack access to the digital skills and devices needed to benefit from the opportunities afforded by digital access.
When we launched our digital equity program Starry Connect five years ago (!!!), it was with little fanfare and a lot of ambition. What started as a pilot with Boston Housing Authority is now available in more than 87,000 units of public and affordable housing in six states.
To celebrate, we have released our first Impact Report featuring Starry Connect’s contributions to closing the digital divide since 2018. It is also an acknowledgement of how much additional work remains to fully bridge the digital divide in our most vulnerable communities. Read the full report here.
We’re excited to continue to tackle this challenge so that #InternetForAll becomes a reality. Scroll for a few highlights of our Connect program over the last 5 years!
