Innovation: What Can the Gig Do for Your City?

A Hometown Summit event.

The United States, creator of the Internet, increasingly lags behind in access to it. In the absence of a national broadband strategy, many communities have invested in broadband infrastructure, especially wireless broadband, to offer broadband choices to their residents. Today’s decisions will lay the foundation for the future of telecommunications in our communities, and in our country as a whole. Join us for a frank conversation that looks at whether, when, how, and why your city should invest in fiber internet and municipal wi-fi with the founder of North America’s leading independent wireless broadband provider for small cities; the Mayor of America’s first “Gig City;” a leading advocate for digital inclusion; and the federal agency in charge of implementing broadband nationally.
