Free webinar on Thursday: Expanding Wi-Fi Access to Your Community

I announced this earlier – but we have a new speaker to unveil. He will speak about a new and innovative approach that involves newly available wireless spectrum and community libraries. And we have a sneak preview in the form of a Fact Sheet on Wi-Fi.

Here’s a description of the session…

Expanding Wi-Fi Access to Your Community: September 12 3-4:00 pm CST

Residents, tourists and business travelers increasingly expect to connectivity wherever they go.  Learn how two Minnesota communities are meeting these expectations by providing Wi-Fi access to ensure that their communities are creating a tech savvy image.

–       In the City of Buffalo, the municipal broadband utility provides citywide access as one of their broadband services.

–       In Todd County, the Todd County Development Corporation is partnering with local businesses to expand Wi-Fi hot spots around the County.

Two communities – two models.  Come and decide which approach or combination of approaches is right for your community.

We will also hear of a new and innovative approach that involves newly available wireless spectrum and community libraries.  “White Spaces” spectrum, unused by broadcast television and excellent for wireless broadband is now being tested by community libraries to deliver broadband services both inside the library building and to the wider community.
