Meeting 'Internet for All' Initiatives

This investment comes on the backdrop of federal initiatives to bring "Internet for All" across the US, including in underserved and rural broadband markets. By increasing its production capabilities, CommScope seeks to cater to the rising US supply demands driven by the government's efforts to narrow the digital divide and ensure equitable access to broadband services.

CommScope stated that it can now expand production capabilities and provide fibre cable to support broadband connectivity nationwide through funding from the BEAD (Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment) Program.

Capacity for Nationwide Broadband Deployment

According to CommScope, currently, the company has the capacity to manufacture drop cable at a rate of approximately 2 billion feet per year in its US facilities, making it well-positioned to facilitate the connection of every underserved American as part of the BEAD program.
