Telecom White Paper Toolkit

Telecom White Paper Member Resources

2023 telecommunications research – the fourth in CGA’s series of White Papers – is being published at a time when record-high excavation activity meets persistent inefficiencies in the damage prevention system. According to CGA’s 2022 DIRT Report, the rate of damages to buried utilities has plateaued for the better part of a decade as the 811 system has struggled to match the excavation demands of a technology-driven world. Now, $65 billion in federal funding to expand high-speed internet access is being deployed across the U.S. concurrently with hundreds of billions of federal and state dollars funding additional infrastructure improvements, resulting in a massive increase in excavation at an already challenging time.

CGA has created a series of resources to support the Telecom White Paper.
