Join speakers from Lincoln, NE and Mont Belvieu, TX as they discuss how their jurisdictions have either set up their own broadband networks.
While those of us living in major metropolitan areas often take our broadband access for granted, even in 2020 many areas of the country still don't have reliable access to high-speed internet. While some local governments have intervened by developing their own broadband networks, in many states there are laws restricting or sometimes outright barring the ability of local governments to offer these services. However, even in states with these restrictions there are still actions your jurisdiction can take to make broadband internet more accessible for your residents.
In this webinar, you'll join speakers from Lincoln, NE and Mont Belvieu, TX as they discuss how their jurisdictions have either set up their own broadband networks or laid the groundwork for the private sector to do so. You'll also hear from Carrie Goetz, an expert in IT infrastructure and smart cities, as she explores case studies from other municipalities across the country who have tackled this important issue.
