I’m afraid there’s no video of the meeting but I have handouts to share from the MN Broadband Task Force meeting:
- Legislative Update
- Cybersecurity Perspective, presented by Rohit Tandon(MNIT)
- Network Security, presented by Brian Scriber(CableLabs)
They heard from several experts in the field about cybersecurity. They talked about the Legislature including a letter the Task Force had sent to the policymakers asking them to consider a greater investment in broadband grants than had been on the table…
While we are appreciative that the House included a $25 million investment, we are disappointed that, in this time of a record surplus, it was reduced from its initial $100 million. Any amount will help to expand broadband access, but Minnesota’s broadband expansion efforts will need more than this amount to reach the finish line.
