About Us

Broadband World News is a publication and resource focused on the global broadband industry and the impact high-speed Internet – and the lack thereof – is having on businesses and society at large.

Broadband World News features breaking news and exclusive stories of the high-speed network operators, engineers, policymakers, investors, utilities and municipalities who are connecting the underserved and unserved populations of the world and laying the groundwork for next-generation broadband-enabled applications and smart city services. Broadband World News serves our readers with news and features, executive interviews, case studies and reports, white papers, webinars, newsletters and podcasts.

Part of the Light Reading Network and produced in coordination with the annual Broadband World Forum event, Broadband World News is home to The Divide – a weekly podcast exploring the challenges to delivering reliable, high-speed Internet to people everywhere, and how to solve them. The Divide features interviews with ISPs, municipalities, vendors, policymakers and community leaders working to close the digital divide. The Divide is available on the Light Reading Podcasts feed and hosted by Broadband World News Site Editor Nicole Ferraro.
