Post-Conference and Extra-Conference Events

The 2011 broadband conference ended with a couple of post-conference sessions. A couple of the vendors gave Broadband 101 Product Demonstrations (thank you Calix, KPG Logistics, MP Nexlevel, CSI Digital and Power & Tel) and Ben Damman spoke about Duluth’s experience attracting Google attention in the question for the Google Gig. The MIRC communities met with Robert Bell to talk about Intelligent Communities. Throughout the conference PCs for People refurbished computers for attendees to bring back to their hometowns to donate to local folks in need. You can learn more from Casey Sorenson below:

It was a nice cap to what I heard several people say it was the best broadband conference yet!
