Access to reliable, affordable broadband internet is essential for communities to thrive in the 21st century. Yet for a range of reasons, many places still struggle to get service to their residents and businesses. This webinar will feature three broadband experts to share context, tips and strategies for broadband deployment, and take your questions about the range of solutions communities are pursuing.

This webinar is offered by IEDC’s Economic Development Research Partners (EDRP) program. EDRP will release its latest research, “Getting Connected: How Economic Developers Are Expanding Broadband Access,” in early June.
