Broadband 2020: Week 3 dispersed conference: jump in to talk broadband when you can!

We had no idea what we were doing back in March when we reimagined the annual broadband conference. We are at the halfway point in the conference and I have to say – so far so good thanks to the many people who are showing up – some every day and some popping in or a session or two. Lots of learning, sharing and partnerships forming.

Please join us when you. This week’s schedule is similar to last week – most programming between 11am and 2pm – with one exception: the Tom Friedman Book Club on Friday from 10-11am. Also we are all invited to view Bill Coleman’s presentation as part of the ICF Summit on Wednesday morning.

Here’s the full schedule:
