Our Services

Broadband Consulting

At Sural Consulting we leverage our broadband policy, grants administration experience and partnerships with other professional services firms to help clients leverage state and federal funding for broadband programs, including the ARPA Capital Projects Fund, State and Local Recovery Fund, and IIJA’s BEAD and Digital Equity programs. 

We work with diverse partners at the local, state and national levels to deliver projects on time and within budget. Our passion for bridging the digital divide drives our attention to client needs and outcomes. 

Government Relations & Public Policy

With more than 25 years of experience as a trusted non-partisan resource to state and federal policy makers with strong relationships throughout the country, we recently worked with a non-profit investing in the commercialization of university research to secure a $500 million appropriation, the single largest to a non-state entity in North Carolina’s history. Mr. Sural has testified before the US House of Representatives, to the North Carolina General Assembly Joint Oversight Committee on Information Technology, and the Economic Development and Global Engagement Committee in addition to numerous public speaking engagements on broadband access and digital inclusion policy. 

About

“Throughout my career I’ve been drawn to opportunities that tackle significant issues facing my community, state and country through sound public policy.”

For the past eight years Jeff served in leadership roles focused on broadband policy and the management of broadband infrastructure and digital equity programs. As a Senior Broadband Policy Advisor for the US Department of the Treasury he helped lead the development of the Capital Projects Fund, distributing $10 billion in ARPA funding to states and Tribes. Prior to joining the Treasury he served as the Director of North Carolina’s Broadband Infrastructure Office where he worked closely with the state’s legislature to create and implement a rural broadband grant program, led negotiations for the appropriation of $750 million in ARPA funding for broadband infrastructure grant programs, and developed the nation’s first state-wide digital equity initiative.
