Blandin Webinar Archive: 2017 Legislative Preview

For folks who couldn’t attend, want to see it again – or as we heard from one viewer – didn’t have enough broadband to view, here are the notes and video of the webinar yesterday…

Join us for our inaugural 2017 webinar to learn what broadband issues will be discussed at the Legislature this year. We will hear from both industry and community perspectives about the grant funds, the Office of Broadband and various niche considerations that impact the availability and affordability of broadband, especially in rural Minnesota.

Brent Christensen, president of the Minnesota Telecom Alliance, will provide the telephone industry perspective.  Laura Ziegler of League of Minnesota Cities, Steve Fenske of the MN Association of Townships and Mark Erickson from the City of Winthrop (and other hats) will discuss what they hope to see accomplished over the next several months.
