Follow the 2011 Broadband Conference!

Connect Minnesota and the Blandin Foundation are excited to be hosting this year’s 2011 Broadband Conference. The conference will focus on ARRA broadband funding efforts that are underway in Minnesota as well as our continued efforts to bring broadband to more schools, businesses, and communities across our state.

We look forward to the more than 100 policymakers from the private, government, and nonprofit sectors who will be attending and discussing their ideas and input on how to bring broadband to more rural and low-income homes.

These discussions will promote a better understanding of how policy impacts policymakers and those seeking to obtain broadband access. Through the sharing of tools and accomplishments of ARRA projects, attendees will celebrate the progress toward meeting broadband adoption goals while planning for future endeavors.
