The Biden administration has released $45 Billion for nationwide internet, recognizing that broadband is a utility needed for citizens to function in today's economy.
Recently the NTIA (National Telecommunications and Information Administration), the federal agency that advises the President on telecom policy, issued their Notices of Funding Opportunity.
NTIA determined that PRIORITY Broadband Projects are those that use end-to-end fiber-optics! We LOVE fiber optics! Fiber optic signals travel via LIGHT on thread-like fibers - and that means NO WIRELESS RADIATION!
Fiber is faster, safer, stronger, more resilient and more secure than wireless! And end-to-end means FIBER TO THE PREMISES, right to your home or business. No need for more toxic cell towers or antennas!
For those who want to irradiate themselves inside their homes, with 5G smart appliances and all, they are free to do so. But the public at large will not have to suffer, because outside the home will be fiber optics instead of toxic towers.
We are blessed to have Hawaiian Telcom already installing fiber to the premises! They call it fioptics! Click here to see if it's available in your area. (No, we are not affiliated with them in any way. We just
love their faster, safer, more secure internet!)
Please reach out to the officials listed below and make them aware of the NTIA priority determination of broadband fiber!
