  • 2.Expanding Broadband Services Results: Jobs, Innovation and Economic Development It’s not just about technology companies or big business: Small businesses comprise 99% of establishments and 80% of total employment in inner cities and economically challenged areas. Small businesses are particularly important in high-tech industries. They currently hire roughly 40% of all high-tech workers, and account for a majority of the more than 1.2 million new jobs generated by the growth of the Internet during the last 10–15 years.* *Maija Renko & Paul Reynolds, Profiling the Growth Oriented Nascent Entrepreneur in the US —Evidence from Representative Samples, pg.12 (2006)
  • 3.Long-Term Impacts of Broadband on Economic Development Increased Economic Output- Yearly increase in GDP in the areas served by new high speed broadband infrastructure, is the largest long-term social or economic impact due to broadband infrastructure spending. The additional broadband infrastructure provided by BTOP can be expected to create more than 22,000 long-term jobs and generate more than $1 billion in additional household income each year.* Broadband Speed and Price Institutions served by BTOP infrastructure grantees experienced significantly increased speeds and lower costs. *ASR Analytics Final Report, pg. 33, available at:
