Broadband Networks are Critical

Thanks to Bernadine Joselyn for passing on the following article: Broadband Networks Critical For Regional Viability, Growth.

Here is the quote of the day taken from the article: (those who are on the Baller list may recognize it:

If your municipality isn’t looking at creative ways to develop new strategies that include having a state-of-the-art network infrastructure to support economic growth and development, they will be stagnating your property value and quality of life in your area. This was the message I conveyed in a speech on intelligent business campuses at the RTC last week.

The article recognizes and details the problems and acute need for broadband in rural areas – as discussed at the Rural Telecon Conference earlier this month. For those who couldn’t make the RTC – or even if you did – these topics will also be discussed at the upcoming Blandin Broadband conference, Community Broadband: Making the Right Choices.
