Hello!

With the conference fast approaching we invite you to check out the freshly expanded and updated conference agenda, encourage you to complete your conference registration soon and remind you that the “Broadband Conference” room block at the Sheraton Duluth Hotel will be released this Friday, September 2.

This year’s conference lends itself beautifully to showcasing the challenges and successes of “Advancing the Vision” in communities across the state. We are especially excited to be featuring projects funded through the Minnesota Office of Broadband Development Border-to-Border Development Grant program. In a “Learning Station” format, you’ll hear first-hand about how these projects came to be and the impact they’re having.

Learning Station presenters include:

  • Central Itasca County Fiber, Paul Bunyan Communications
  • RS Fiber FTTH Project (Renville and Sibley Counties)
  • Rock County Broadband Alliance FTTP Project
  • Middle Mile (in 20 southwestern MN counties), MVTV Wireless
  • Winona County Whitewater Area, Hiawatha Broadband Communications

Border to Border Broadband: Advancing the Vision is your chance to connect with others, and hear about the great work being done across the state to advance the vision so thoughtfully crafted by 2015 conference attendees:

“Everyone in Minnesota will be able to use convenient, affordable world-class broadband networks that enable us to survive and thrive in our communities and across the globe.”

Join us!
