Wired for Success Morning Recap

This morning, the Wired for Success Summit got off to a fast start with keynote addresses from Broadband Taskforce Chairman Daphne DeLeon and Deputy Director of the Governor's Office on Economic Development Michael Skaggs.

Both speakers praised the event with DeLeon calling it "an unprecedented opportunity to foster new partnerships and foster broadband growth across the state" and Skaggs pointing out that the seven major growth industries in Nevada will all benefit from increased broadband expansion and adoption.

The theme from the speakers, and those in attendance, has been on the many opportunities that will be had by expanding broadband into the many rural areas of Nevada, as well as into low-income communities where the digital divide is at its greatest.
