1. Identify 3 case study infrastructure initiatives, government programs, or other policies, from lecture and the Module1readings, that you feel couldeffectivelyimprove Internet access in your hometown or a city near you.- I believe that that internet providers being required to offer affordable service at $15 amonth to low-income householders would be effective in my hometown in Arizona. There are many family that are big and do not make a lot, as internet is becoming more evolved and needed in todays world, I believe that this shouldn’t be a thought. - Including actual competition between the providers will be good because usually people go with the cheapest in Arizona as tats is what they are able to afford for a big family.2. The articleTo Bridge Digital and Divide, Cities tap their owninfrastructureby Linda Poonlistsvariousapproaches toimproving internet access and quality.Whichcase studyimplementationprogram isthe most feasibletoimplementforyour hometownor a city near you?What barriers might stand in the way of implementing the system?- The city San Antonio in this article approach to improve internet access and quality is most feasible to implement in my hometown.

Why should cities consider installing streetlight sensing nodes?Cities should consider installing streetlight sensing nodes because it’s a way to get data on light, air, temperature vibration, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, sound intensity, vehicle traffic, surface temperature. I think that the data that can be collected with these as it is important for us to understand and engage with the data, this will only make our cities better.
