The East Bay Broadband Consortium (EBBC) is a regional initiative to improve broadband deployment, access, and adoption in Alameda, Contra Costa and Solano Counties through a collaborative regional approach. EBBC has two primary initiatives – the East Bay Broadband Infrastructure Initiative, which focuses on improving regional broadband infrastructure, and the East Bay Connects Digital Inclusion Initiative, which provides information on how to bridge the Digital Divide and acquire and use affordable broadband.
EBBC is organized by the Contra Costa Economic Partnership, the East Bay Economic Development Alliance, the East Bay Community Foundation and the Solano Economic Development Corporation in Alameda, Contra Costa and Solano Counties. The Consortium receives primary funding from the California Public Utilities Commission and support from the East Bay Community Foundation, the Lesher Foundation and the California Emerging Technology Fund.
