Bernie Sanders's policies onScience & Tech

Invest in broadband and high-speed Internet services

Today, people living in Bucharest, Romania have access to much faster Internet than most of the United States. That’s unacceptable and must change.

Senator Sanders’ Rebuild America Act would invest $25 billion over five years to expand high-speed broadband networks in under-served and un-served areas, and would boost speeds and capacity all across the country, particularly in rural areas.

High-speed Internet access is no longer a luxury. It is essential for 21st century commerce, education, telemedicine, and public safety. And, it’s especially important for rural America to stay connected and to do business with the rest of the world.
