Chicago Area Broadband Initiative


What is CABI?

The Chicago-Area Broadband initiative (CABI) is a digital socio-economic transformation project whose goal is to provide residents of Chicago’s economically challenged areas with Gigabit Opportunities that enable them to become participant’s in, rather than spectators of, the digital economy.


CABI represents a multi-faceted solution to the need to platform historically economically neglected communities to the promise and benefits of the digital economy.

Our Mission

Generate digital economic development in targeted areas throughout the City of Chicago where predominantly economically disadvantaged residents reside in order to counter the historical lack of access to the benefits and opportunities connected to broadband services and applications thus creating Gigabit Opportunity Zones.
