Broadband & $42 Billion: What It Means for Public Media
$42 billion in federal dollars are now being deployed to ensure that every household in America is connected to high-speed broadband. What does this mean for rural and urban areas across the country and, critically, what does this mean for public media organizations?
In this webinar, Public Media Company’s Carlos Barrionuevo (who is also on the board of the Maine Connectivity Authority and a driving force behind the state’s efforts to ensure universal high-speed broadband) is joined by an esteemed panel of guests to discuss the deployment of federal funds, the impact on local communities, and the pivotal role that public media organizations can potentially play in this digital transformation.
