(IS-2014-179) Broadband Technology Opportunities Program Evaluation Study

This report from ASR Analytics reviews the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP). “BTOP projects support increased broadband access and adoption, provide broadband training and support through community organizations, and stimulate the demand for broadband.” This study uses Impact Analysis for Planning (IMPLAN), an input-output model that is widely used in the study of economic impacts, to estimate the direct, indirect, and induced impacts of BTOP. “Economic input-output models, like IMPLAN, are the primary tools to measure the total economic impact of a policy or event.”
