The Broadband Communities Summit is the leading event for Broadband Systems Operators. That means it’s a great place to learn about new technologies, deployments and policies from the folks on the ground. There are multiple tracks including a few that really speak to most Blandin on Broadband readers: a special track dedicate to rural broadband with an emphasis on funding and an economic development track full of case studies and good ideas.
You can check out the agenda online. Here are a few of my person highlights:
- Models for Successful Public-Private and Public-Public Partnerships
- The ‘Sausage Making’ of Fiber Financing – How it Really Works
- The Great Reset: Community-Based Ecosystems in the COVID-19 Era
- Apps for Rural America: Putting Better Broadband to Better Uses
Check out the agenda – you may have your own favorites. And if you do, please let us know. Broadband Communities has been kind enough to share a few VIP tickets with us to share. Contact me firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll hook you up. (While supplies last.)
