Broadband and Wireless – Connecting All the Dots

To learn about the economic benefits of broadband networks and approaches for connecting your businesses and citizens attend the MACo Summer Conference session titled “Broadband and Wireless – Connecting All the Dots”. The MACo Summer Conference will be held August 12-15 at the Roland Powell Convention Center in Ocean City, Maryland. More details on the session are below.

Description: As technology improves, businesses and citizens across Maryland need the capability to communicate and locate information at faster speeds. Yet, there are still many areas that do not have access to broadband or wireless networks. The resulting lack of connectivity limits economic and educational opportunities. This session will discuss the government’s role in providing access, broadband and wireless approaches to achieve it, and why it’s worth the investment.
