ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Internet is essential for our day-to-day lives. For the city of Albuquerque, they say providing high quality and affordable internet is a priority.

In Albuquerque, the majority of households are connected. That doesn’t mean everybody that needs it has it and it doesn’t mean it’s affordable or reliable.

It needs more competition, more providers, better infrastructure to fill in the gaps and more affordable options.

What are they doing to fill in those gaps is:

  • Collaborate with private companies to bring future-proof infrastructure like fiber-to-the-home
  • Conduct marketing and outreach around the FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program
  • Made available a broadband survey specific to Albuquerque residents Digital Equity is more important than ever and now that we have a broadband office, we can look at the digital equity needs that we have right here in Albuquerque.
