LinkIDAHO is a state-wide initiative intended to promote availability and use of broadband internet services. Funded by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, LinkIDAHO activities include mapping to identify service gaps, planning, and capacity building.[1]

The University of Idaho’s Office of Community Partnerships (OCP) and Social Sciences Research Center (SSRU) are responsible for monitoring and evaluating LinkIDAHO, 2012—2014. Because broadband is less available in sparsely populated areas, our main focus is in rural Idaho. We work closely with the State Broadband Coordinator. VisionTech360, a firm based in Spokane with national and international broadband experience, manages LinkIDAHO’s planning and capacity building activities, including development of a Statewide Broadband Framework.
