Welcome to the California Broadband Council
The California Broadband Council (CBC) was established in 2010 by legislation (S.B. 1462 – Padilla) “…to promote broadband deployment in unserved and underserved areas of the state as defined by the Public Utilities Commission, and broadband adoption throughout the state.” Moreover, the CBC identifies state resources, encourages public and private partnerships, and recommends strategic policy and legislation to establish the right structure for providing world class high speed Internet access throughout the state of California. The CBC is run by the California Department of Technology’s Office of Broadband and Digital Literacy, and supports the Council by managing the statewide ecosystem of individuals and organizations dedicated to closing the digital divide.
The California Broadband Council consists of 9 members representing key state organizations and the legislators. In 2018 the CBC created 3 key task forces to support its objectives: Long Term Goals, Surplus Equipment and Tribal. Together, the CBC and its supporting task forces are focused on establishing broadband access at 98% and broadband adoption to 90% by 2023, ultimately eliminating the Digital Divide.
