RuralRISE Mini-Summit 2021: Focusing on rural broadband
Join fellow rural ecosystem builders in the conversation about rural broadband during the 2021 RuralRISE Mini-Summit on April 15, 2021. The event will be held virtually between 2 and 5 p.m., and will also include a social happy hour from 5 to 6 p.m.
For rural communities, access to stable and affordable broadband and wireless connectivity continues to be a challenge. RuralRISE aims to highlight solutions and projects.
This event will focus on:
- Digital Divide
- Public Policy
- Innovative Partnership and the deployment of broadband into rural communities
- 5-minute Quick Pitches – rural communities showcasing successful broadband projects
