Fast Internet isn't just a convenience or a luxury -- it's a necessity for economic progress. Unfortunately, too many of America's communities lack access to high-speed broadband Internet.

But Cedar Falls, Iowa -- a town of only about 40,000 people -- has broadband that's nearly 100 times faster than the national average. (That's on par with cities like Hong Kong and Tokyo.) And it's because the people of Cedar Falls came together to make strategic investments for their citizens and businesses, and brought new competition to their broadband market.

Tomorrow, in Cedar Falls, President Obama will announce actions to help more communities get access to fast and affordable broadband.

By welcoming new competition or building next-generation networks, these communities are pioneers in broadband that works. And tomorrow, the President will provide municipal leaders and entrepreneurs with new tools to help replicate this success across America.

Get the facts on the President's new actions here -- and tune in tomorrow to watch his remarks in Cedar Falls.
