Rural Broadband availability is a priority for our communities and the customers we serve. We can learn from current partnerships about best practices to reach more rural areas with robust broadband.
Discussion will include:
  • Examples of current successful partnerships between broadband and electric providers.
  • State and federal grant funding programs and opportunities.
  • Open forum for your questions, concerns and priorities moving forward.
A more detailed agenda will be available closer to the even.
