Wanted to share info on an upcoming SHLB webinar series to help community anchor institutions gear up for better broadband…

We’re very excited to announce the beginning of our Grow2Gig+ webinar series! Over the next five months, we’ll be exploring different ways to help schools, libraries, health clinics, and other anchor institutions Grow2Gig+ speeds, starting with The First Steps in Creating a Broadband Plan. Follow the hashtags #Grow2Gig and #BroadbandPlan for tips and information. Also, feel free to tweet your own stories and questions.

This month, we’ll be covering the necessary steps cities and states need to create a broadband plan with the paper “Broadband Needs Assessment and Planning for Community Anchor Institutions.” Then we’ll discuss the more technical aspects anchor institutions need to know about WiFi and Wireless connections to prepare a broadband plan with the paper “WiFi and Wireless Networking for Community Anchor Institutions.”
