On the agenda for this meeting the Council will hear a presentation on recommendations resulting from the Performance Audit Broadband Access Study commissioned by the County Council. This study was undertaken to identify strategies for increasing broadband access and speed across Pierce County, develop an inventory of what broadband infrastructure currently exists, and explore potential public investments and regulatory reforms that would increase and attract private broadband infrastructure development.
