Until all Kansans, in communities large and small, have access to broadband technology, we are not fully preparing ourselves for the future, Broadband technology, or high- speed interact access, is important to every state's econonly, It allows busi- nesses to run their dey-to-day opera- tions more effectively and efficiently. It holds the promise of new markets and access to new customers. In December, 2001, Area Develop- ment magazine surveyed corpgrate relocation professionals. One of the strongest factors in deciding where to do business was the availability to tele- communications services. Right now, that availability is limited at best--more than 100 Kansas cities do not have access to high-speed DSL Internet ser- vice. Ensuring that all communities have broadband will create new jobs and generate more tax revenue. The tele- communications and technology sec- tors account for at least 25 percent of overall economic growth in the United States, m~ it.the driving force in the economy m recent years. Evenit small number of jobs can have a sig- nificant impact on a community's economy. For example, creating 25 positions that pay $30,000 a year (the state average) can have a ripple effect of more than $2 million as those dol- lars are spent--and spent again---lo- cally. Laws on broadband fairness en- courage investment in the technology by applying the same rules to all pro- viders of high-speed internet, whether they are cable, phone, satellite or wire- ~44-9092; - less companies.

It' s time for Kansas state legislators to eliminate that uncertainty by pro- viding rules that will stimulate broad- band investment.
