Broadband Partnership of the Americas (BPA)
- At the 2012 Summit of the Americas, President Obama announced a three-year Broadband Partnership of the Americas (BPA) to “provide faster internet to more communities in Latin America and the Caribbean, especially in rural areas…to ensure that no one is left behind in our digital age.”
- The BPA mobilizes the expertise and resources of the U.S. government, the donor community, regional organizations, and the private sector to support the broadband rollout and adoption efforts of motivated countries in the region. It promotes universal access to communications and broadband technologies as a tool for competitiveness, development, and economic prosperity.
- The United States and partner countries in the region are exploring ways to accelerate connectivity to and use of broadband for development. Since 2012, the BPA has shared U.S. government technical and regulatory expertise via sub-regional meetings on universal access, broadband plans, spectrum and frequency management, and implications for broadband deployment.
