Flume says cities overflowing with fiber but accessibility lags
Nov 21, 2022
Flume, a New York City-based fiber provider, has made strides over the past couple of years offering gigabit service to lower-income households. But there are still hurdles in place hindering broadband accessibility, according to Flume co-founders Brandon Gibson and Prashanth Vijay.
The FCC last week introduced the first draft of its broadband map, providing U.S. residents an in-depth look on coverage across the country. In an interview with Fierce, Gibson and Vijay acknowledged the map is not only a step in the right direction for closing the digital divide, but it can also help tackle the issue of broadband accessibility.
