At SANDAG, we’re committed to working with our partners to bridge the digital divide in the San Diego region. Thanks to the Regional Digital Divide Taskforce that was created in 2021, great strides have been made in closing this gap in our region. The taskforce was made up of representatives from public agencies, broadband providers, and non-profit organizations who collaborated on a regional framework and guiding principles that helped shape the Regional Digital Equity Strategy and Action Plan.
SANDAG's Regional Digital Infrastructure Taskforce consists of staff involved in permitting, service development, and engineering from local jurisdictions, tribes, and transportation agencies. This taskforce works together to develop regional standard practices that streamline the deployment of digital communications infrastructure to advance intelligent transportation solutions, smart cities, and broadband in underserved areas.
