California Senator Alex Padilla and CPUC President Michael Peevey hosted a group of top level government executives in Sacramento for the kick off meeting of the California Broadband Council on February 28, 2011.  The group includes top executives from state government, including the California Technology Agency, the California Emergency Management Agency, the Superintendent of Public Instruction, the Director of General Services, the Secretary of Business, Transportation and Housing and the President of the Emerging Technologies Fund.  Although the group has no direct funds to award for broadband projects, the members vowed to coordinate efforts among California agencies, the public and technology innovators to increase broadband deployment to unserved and underserved citizens and to eliminate the Digital Divide by expanding broadband accessibility, literacy, adoption, and usage.  One California company, Box Top Solutions, Inc. presented a plan to connect the unconnected with free broadband to be paid for by service providers using a reverse billing application for Internet access similar to the model for 1-800 toll free calls for voice.  Contact iCommLaw.com for more information.California Agencies Band Together To Promote Broadband Deployment and Bridge the Digital Divide
