These municipal broadband networks are a public utility available to residents, especially in rural areas where high speed connectivity is scarce. Building and managing a broadband network is often an expensive endeavor. This webinar will discuss the fundamentals of developing and deploying municipal broadband as well as how to secure funding. Additional topics may be presented.
