Bronston Speaks at BEAD Implementation Summit

Town Hall on Buy America and Other Regulatory Compliance Matters

The Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) program includes a Buy America requirement that directs providers to source 55% or more of material from the United States. Industry leaders have expressed concern that these requirements may put an impossible burden on the program. More and more fiber-optic cable plants are locating and offering “Made in America” materials, but will it be enough?

David E. Bronston participated in a “town hall” session at the BEAD Implementation Summit, which addressed problems with Buy America, letters of credit, workforce development, supplier diversity and other regulatory requirements.
