The annual telecommunications forum will feature a panel discussion with key legislators in the broadband arena.
(Published Mar 5, 2013)
Discussion is underway at the Minnesota State Legislature about the best path forward for broadband policy in Minnesota. Issues include the need for investment for reducing rural and urban disparities, the need for investment in big broadband networks, and the need for support for critical digital services such as health, education, agriculture and essential public services. The context for all of these issues is the increasing evidence that big broadband and economic development are closely connected. What are the right steps for Minnesota? Leaders of key legislative committees with responsibilities for broadband policy will share their thoughts.
